Goa invites EoI for distributed solar under PM KUSUM


Goa Energy Development Agency (GEDA) has invited applications from EPC contractors, system integrators, and developers to set up decentralized, grid-connected solar plants on barren or uncultivable land under Component A of the PM KUSUM scheme.

The Scheme allows farmers or their groups to set up PV power plants on their uncultivable/barren land and benefit from selling the generated power to the State Discoms.

Alongside, GEDA has invited an expression of interest from farmers/landowners willing to set up these PV power plants as it seeks to aggregate the capacity under the Scheme. 

The plants—to be installed in sizes of 500 kW to 2 MW—can be installed upon barren/uncultivable land within a 10 km radius of the 33KV/11KV network of the electricity department to facilitate the easy evacuation of solar power.

Individual farmers or their groups, also referred to as landowners, can collaborate with EPC contractors, system integrators, or developers to set up these plants through their own investment or lease mode.

The tariff determination shall be done subsequently based on the aggregation of capacity.
