Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd. (MSEDCL) has issued a tender to procure up to 500 MW of solar power from grid-connected PV projects through competitive bidding.
The bidders selected by MSEDCL shall have existing solar power plants or set up new capacity to supply the power.
In case of new/proposed plants, the solar power generator shall be responsible for the design, finance, procurement of land, engineering, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance of the project.
The discom shall enter into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the successful bidders for a period of 25 years from the scheduled commercial operation date in case of proposed/new solar power projects.
“Projects under construction, projects which are not yet commissioned and projects already commissioned but do not have any long-term PPA with any agency and selling power on short-term or merchant plant basis will, however, be considered in case these projects are not already accepted under any other Central or State Schemes and do not have any obligations towards existing buyers,” as per the tender document.
