The winning developers will set up solar power projects with assured supply from an energy storage system for at least six hours during the peak demand periods (from 6 am to 10 am, and 6 pm to 10 pm).
The projects are to be developed on a build-own-operate basis. These can be built anywhere in India and must connect to the interstate transmission grid.
