The Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) has invited Expression of Interest to identify the applicants who are interested in leasing or selling their land to developers for setting up agricultural feeder-level solar power plants in the State.
India’s solar-powered irrigation mission has had a sluggish run despite the PM-KUSUM scheme providing ample flexibility and budgetary support for the system implementation. An IEEFA report highlights the need to address the challenges of coordination, affordability, business models, technology and awareness creation at State level to increase the uptake.
Tata Power brings technology and financial strength to set up the distributed, small-scale solar power systems in rural areas and provide round-the-clock power supply to households and businesses. CSC brings to the partnership village-level entrepreneurs to provide quick, low-cost service support.
The innovators will be required to showcase their technologies in actual field conditions. The shortlisted ones will be empanelled and allocated sites for installing solar pumps under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Urja Suraksha evem Utthan Mahabhiyan (PM KUSUM) Scheme.
Today, the State has 5042 MW of renewable energy capacity, a ten-fold increase from 491 MW in 2012.
The selected applicants are required to execute projects across categories like solar-powered cold storage, solar water pumps, solar-powered reverse-osmosis water systems and off-grid solar systems for primary health care centers on a turnkey basis. The work includes engineering, supply, erection, commissioning along with maintenance support for three years.
Through its newly formed subsidiary Convergence Energy Services Limited (Convergence), the Energy Efficiency Services Limited will implement ground-mounted solar power plants—in sizes of 500 kW to 2 MW—on vacant/unused land provided by the Gram Panchayats or electricity board in the state.
