The Coal India Limited arm plans a 40MW ground-mounted, grid-connected solar power plant initially as it eyes an overall 142 MW PV capacity in three years.
Anil Kottantharayil currently leads the Centre for Research in Nanotechnology and Science, as well as the Sophisticated Analytical Instrument Facility, at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay. He works on high-efficiency crystalline silicon solar cells, the impact of dust on solar panels, and the long-term reliability of photovoltaic modules.
The capacity—to be set up on a build, own, operate basis—will be installed on vacant railway land. Bidding closes on August 26.
Solar PV project owners need to make choices in terms of plant monitoring equipment. That can be electrical metrology equipment, but could also include new approaches such as using drones and machine-learning algorithms, or both.
The Chattisgarh-headquartered integrated steel manufacturer will set up a solar power plant of 250 MW capacity in the Raigarh district. The electricity generated from the plant shall be utilized for the enhanced billet capacity at the company’s existing factory in the Raipur district.
Developers have until June 21 to bid for grid-connected solar installation under the Scheme that allows farmers to set up PV power plants on their land and benefit from selling the generated power to the State Discoms. The plants, in sizes of 500 kW to 2 MW, shall come upon cultivable or uncultivable land within a 5 km radius of substations.
Solar power generators have until June 15 to bid for the development of projects on a build-own-operate basis. The ceiling tariff payable for the electricity generated has been fixed at INR 3.10/kWh.
Solar power generators have until June 22 to bid for the development of projects, on a build-own-operate basis. The ceiling tariff payable for the electricity generated has been fixed at INR3.08 INR/kWh in the tender.
