Karnataka dairy producers tender 100 MW solar for self-consumption


The Karnataka Cooperative Milk Producers’ Federation Ltd (KMF) and milk unions intend to source electricity from the 100 MW (AC) solar plant under open access, which is expected to save them around INR 51 crore ($6.4 million) annually.

The prospective developer’s work scope includes design, finance, installation, commissioning, synchronization, implementation, and operations and maintenance for a period of 25 years.

“The project is considered feasible to KMF and its member milk unions if the savings are 30% or more of the existing power charges through the implementation of the project. Subsequently, if the final tariff discovered through this tender does not give the anticipated savings as envisaged, a few milk unions may choose not to subscribe to this project and the capacity award may accordingly vary,” states the tender document.
