SECI launches 2 GW wind-solar hybrid tender


Solar Energy Corp. of India Ltd (SECI) has invited bids to set up 2 GW of wind-solar hybrid power projects on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis in India. The projects must connect to the interstate transmission system and can be located anywhere in India.

SECI will sign a 25-year power purchase agreement with the successful bidders. Power procured by SECI from these projects has been provisioned to be sold to the different buying entities of India.

The selected hybrid power developers will set up ISTS-connected wind-solar hybrid power projects, including the dedicated transmission network up to the interconnection/delivery points, to supply wind-solar hybrid power to SECI.

A single developer can bid for a cumulative contracted capacity of 50 MW to 1 GW. The total capacity to be allocated to a bidder will be 1 GW.

Bidders who have already commissioned wind-solar hybrid power plants or are in the process of constructing such plants and have untied capacity may also participate under this RfS. In such case, they will be given the benefit of a longer period of PPA, commensurate to the duration between the actual date of commencement of power supply and the scheduled commencement of supply date, as per the tender document.
