Share

Maharashtra State Power Generation Co. Ltd. has opened bidding for the development of a 105 MW grid-connected floating solar project at the Erai River dam, in the Chandrapur district of Maharashtra.

A single PV developer will be chosen to set up the solar park in two phases of 65 MW and 40 MW, on a “build-own-operate” basis. The project will be built under the Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Power Park (UMREPP), “Mode 8” of the modified Solar Park Scheme. Under this mode, state-owned organizations can serve as solar park developers.

MSPGCL will enter into a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the successful bidder. The power will be sold to Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd. The project must be commissioned within 15 months from the signing of the PPA.
