Madhya Pradesh Urja Vikas Nigam Limited has invited solar power developers to set up an aggregate 270 MW of grid-connected PV capacity under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (PM KUSUM) scheme.
The plants—to be installed in sizes of 500 kW to 2 MW—shall come upon cultivable land, pastureland, marshland, barren and uncultivable land within 5 km radius of substations at various locations in Madhya Pradesh.
Madhya Pradesh Power Management Company Limited (MPPMCL) shall sign a 25-year power purchase agreement at a tariff discovered through competitive bidding followed by reverse auction. The tariff ceiling is fixed at INR 3.07/kWh (US$ 0.042/kWh).
The developer’s work scope includes design, engineering, construction, testing, commissioning of the solar plant (including the construction of bay and related switchgear at sub-station), along with comprehensive operation and maintenance for 25 years.

500KW to 2MW means 100% Coverage of 1-4Acres…. as this full exposure by farmers on RE would be fraught with undesirable dependence on Solar Power only… therefore…. leaves out most farmers in the country….. another Program just for Urban Farmers… who will further ensure Tax Free Income from this “Agricultural Produce”….
When will programs be created to help SMALL FARMERS… who can do with some help… rather than Large, Phony, Tax Dodging, Rich … mostly Urban “Farmers”…???
