The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd (MSEDCL) has issued a tender to procure a cumulative 445 MW (AC) of solar power from decentralized, grid-connected PV projects to be developed under component-A of the PM Kusum Scheme in the Indian State of Maharashtra.
The MSEDCL shall enter into a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the successful bidders.
The bidders selected by MSEDCL shall set up solar power projects in sizes of minimum 0.5MW to maximum 2MW capacity. Their scope of work includes design, finance, procurement of land, engineering, procurement, construction, metering, and operation and maintenance of the solar plant.
“The solar power project under the scheme would be implemented primarily on barren/uncultivable land. Agricultural land is also permitted under the scheme provided that solar plants are installed in a stilt fashion (i.e. raised structure for installation of solar panels) and with adequate spacing between panel rows for ensuring that farming activity is not affected. In case of cultivable land with solar plants, the same may be installed on stilts, so that the farmers continue to cultivate the land, apart from getting the benefit of lease rent,” as per the tender document.
The solar power project will be preferably installed within a five km radius of the sub-stations to avoid the high cost of sub-transmission lines and to reduce transmission losses.
Projects under construction and not having any PPA with existing buyers shall also be eligible to participate in the tender.
