Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Ltd (MSEDCL) has started accepting bids to develop grid-connected, ground-mounted solar plants, ranging in size from 2 MW to 10 MW, in various districts of Maharashtra. The ceiling tariff is fixed at INR 3.30 ($0.041)/kWh, with bidding scheduled to close on December 16.
In May 2018, India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy adopted the National Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy. Though paltry when it comes to offering incentives or preferential treatment to solar-wind-hybrid (SWH) projects, the policy aims to enable more SWH projects to efficiently utilize transmission infrastructure and land, as well as reducing variability in renewable generation and thus improving grid stability.
The solar project, the largest in the state, will supply power to Assam Power Distribution Co. Ltd under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
Under a new tariff-based competitive bidding system, Indian farmers can set up solar plants ranging in size from 500 kW to 2 MW on uncultivable farmland, so they can sell the electricity to state distribution companies. They can also lease their land for PV arrays. The fixed ceiling tariff is INR 3.10 ($0.04)/kWh, with bidding scheduled to close on June 15.
Rays Experts has agreed to supply plug-and-play infrastructure for up to 3 GW of PV projects across 9,000 acres in Bikaner district, Rajasthan.
Webdyn’s Indian unit has supplied remote monitoring tech and hybrid power management solutions for 4.2 GW of solar plants since 2015, while Italian inverter maker Fimer has supplied its 1 MVA inverters for a new integrated solar-plus-storage project in Gujarat.
