Meghalaya Power Generation Corporation Limited (MePGCL) has invited bids from solar power developers to set up an aggregate 20 MW grid-connected solar capacity in the State.
The capacity is tendered under the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy’s scheme for the “Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects,” and is divided into two sites, namely, Thamar and Suchen, each with around 10 MW. There are four plots of each 5 MW capacity. A single developer can bid for all four plots.
MePGCL has identified and acquired land for the solar park on both the sites, 17.56 hectares in Thamar and 16 hectares in Suchen.
MePGCL shall enter into a power purchase agreement with the successful bidders for 25 years. The solar power procured from the projects has been provisioned to be sold to the State DISCOM of Meghalaya.
The maximum tariff payable to the project developer is fixed at INR 4.00/kWh for 25 years.
