Kerala discom to procure 150 MW of solar power


Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) has started accepting bids from solar power generators to supply electricity on a short-term basis, as it looks to meet its Renewable Purchase Obligations.

The electricity will be provided from June 15, 2022, to March 31, 2023. The distribution company (discom) will procure the power through a tariff-based bidding process.

Solar power generators can bid for some or all of the tendered quantity. The minimum bid capacity is 10 MW. Solar power can be offered from single or multiple sources, with each source supplying a minimum of 10 MW, said KSEB.

The bidders should be capable of providing power at the delivery point – that is, on the periphery of Kerala for the inter-state transmission of power, and at pooling substations for intra-state transmission. They must quote a single all-inclusive tariff at the delivery point, said KSEB.
