Maharashtra Discom tenders for purchase of 500 MW of wind-solar power


Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd. (MSEDCL) has issued a tender to procure 500 MW of wind-solar hybrid power from grid-connected inter-state and intra-state projects. The projects shall be awarded through competitive bidding followed by reverse auction.

The bidders selected by MSEDCL shall set up wind-solar hybrid power projects including the
transmission/distribution network up to the delivery point and supply power under a 25-year PPA with MSEDCL.

“The inter/intra-state wind-solar hybrid projects already commissioned but do not have any long-term PPA with any agency can/may 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.

For intra-state projects, the minimum size of a single hybrid power project shall be 25 MW, with at least 10 MW at one site, to be interconnected at a single delivery point. The minimum size for inter-state projects shall be 50 MW at one site. 

The rated project capacity of one resource (wind or solar) in the wind-solar hybrid power project shall be at least 33% of the total contracted capacity. For example, if the total contracted capacity comprises 200 MW, the minimum rated project capacity of wind or solar shall be at least 66 MW.
