SECI tenders 1785 MW of solar capacity in Rajasthan


The Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) has invited bids to develop an aggregate 1785 MW of grid-connected solar capacity in Rajasthan. The projects—to be developed on a build-own-operate basis—can be set up anywhere in the State. 

The selection of developers shall be carried out through e-bidding followed by a reverse auction process. 

SECI shall sign a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the successful bidders. Power procured from these projects has been provisioned to be sold to the State Discoms, which shall procure power through Rajasthan Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (RUVNL). 

Bidders shall quote a single tariff for all the projects applied for, which shall be applicable for the PPA term.

Single developers may bid for any capacity from 10 MW to 1785 MW, which shall be quoted only in integral values. The minimum project size shall be 10 MW and the maximum 1785 MW. Land and connectivity shall be in the scope of the solar power developer. 

“Projects under construction or projects that are not yet commissioned can be considered if these projects are not already accepted under any other Central or State schemes,” as per the tender document.
