The Bihar Electricity Regulatory Commission has approved the purchase of 200 MW of solar power at an INR 3.11/kWh tariff from grid-connected PV projects to be developed by state-owned hydropower producer SJVN in the State. State Discoms shall procure the power under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
The Bihar Renewable Energy Development Agency (BREDA) had filed a petition with the regulatory commission seeking permission for the production of 250 MW of solar power and its tariff fixation. The tender for this capacity was floated in December 2020, in which four companies participated. SJVN offered to produce 200 MW of solar power and sell at the lowest rate of INR 3.11/kWh.
SJVN will set up solar power plants in various districts of the state.
