Punjab invites EoI for 100 MW floating solar 


Punjab Energy Development Agency (PEDA) has invited an Expression of Interest (EoI) from prospective developers to set up floating solar projects of different sizes aggregating to 100 MW across Punjab. The projects are to be developed on a build-own-operate basis.

PEDA, through this EoI, intends to collect information about the feasibility of floating PV projects. It will select developers by floating a tender based on the inputs received from the EOI. 

“PEDA, through this EoI, intends to collect information about the feasibility of floating PV projects and interact with prospective developers in the market to enable PEDA in the formulation and calling of bids for the selection of floating PV developers on a build-own-operate basis,” states the EoI document.

Power generated from the projects will be procured by the state electricity distribution company on a long-term basis, at a tariff discovered in the bidding process.

In a separate development, Rajasthan Electronics & Instruments Ltd has invited bids to set up a cumulative 50 MWp of grid-connected solar plants for government buildings in different states and union territories of India. The projects are to be developed under the RESCO model. The scope of work includes site survey, design, manufacture, supply, erection, testing, and commissioning of the PV plants along with the associated power evacuation and transmission system. The developer will also provide 25 years of operation and maintenance support.
