JAIPUR: Rajasthan government is defined to receive 1,070 megawatt more from solar power since it attempts to improve the share of this renewable energy at the whole energy consumption basket. Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a tender for the state authorities for grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) power projects to be installed in the nation.
Beneath the renewable purchase arrangement (RPO), which mandates the country to combine renewable energy using traditional thermal energy, the nation has set a goal to fulfill 21percent of its energy needs from solar resources by 2023-24.
Presently, the country has two,178 mw installed capability under RPO and yet another 20,000 mw under distinct phases of development. Aside from the present 1,070mw tender, the country has approached SECI to float tenders for the following 1,700 mw that will take the entire RPO capability to 7,000mw, which is 21percent of the whole energy intake in the nation.
“This 1,070 mw solar ability will further decrease the expense of electricity for us, benefitting both individuals and the discoms. We’ve enlisted SECI to perform the entire procedure of tendering and auction anticipating better answers from programmers and reduced prices ,” explained Ajitabh Sharma, chief secretary, Department of Energy and also chairman of Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation.
According to the tender, solar energy programmers will need to put one bid for virtually any amount starting from a minimum size of 10 mw moving around 1,070 mw as well as the jobs would to be installed on a build-own-operate foundation and may be located anywhere in the country.
In a mean of Rs crore investment each megawatt, the tender will bring roughly Rs 4300 crore investments from the country.
The selected bidder will be asked to signal a 25-year electricity purchase arrangement with SECI that will sell the ability to Rajasthan Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd.
The jobs have a commissioning period of 18 months from the effective date of this PPA.
“Jobs should be made for interconnection using the closest substation of this country transmission utility in a voltage level of 33 kV or over. The programmer shall prepare the solar project, such as a dedicated transmission system into the interconnection/delivery stage, at its cost,” explained SECI.
