The New Delhi-based developer is planning a 50 MW plant after the 100 MW facility originally proposed was stymied by the power evacuation equipment available at the Khulna site.
The solar plant is the Indian multinational’s fifth win in Latin America. The EPC has a a 93.3 MW project in Argentina and is constructing three other Chilean PV plants with a total generation capacity of 588 MW.
The state, which is aiming to hit 2.2 GW of solar within two years, has received a Solar Energy Corporation of India proposal for 500 MW of floating project capacity even as it approves a 40 MW water-borne array put forward by the national solar body. The 500 MW suggested comes on top of a similar scale of floating PV planned across the state by public hydropower company NHPC.
The state—which has already installed an aggregate 9.6 GW of renewable energy capacity as of FY 2019-20 end—will add another 22.6 GW to the grid by the end of FY2029-30. Of the new RE addition, 18 GW will come from solar capacity.
Bridge to India figures show dominance of Chinese inverters, which supplied almost 80% of installs from July last year to the end of June.
Developers now have until September 23 to lodge bids for the 110 MW procurement round and can toss their hat into the ring for a new tender in the district of Jamnagar which closes on October 5.
The tracked green finance for climate mitigation was an average Rs 124 thousand crore (US$19 billion) for FY 2017 and FY 2018, representing only about 10% of what the country required.
As of June 30, the country installed 90.5 GW of renewable energy capacity from solar (utility-scale and rooftop), wind and biomass resources.
Solar panels at the railway coach manufacturer’s three factories in West Bengal will cover approximately 50,000 sq m of roof space and generate around a quarter of the power used by the company each year.
The Rajasthan-headquartered engineering, procurement and construction company commissioned the project as part of a 40 MW solar park in Bhiwani district. The business has an ambitious renewables plan for the state with 150 MW in its two-year pipeline.
