Rajasthan Electronics & Instruments Limited (REIL) has invited bids for setting up of 1.7 MW (AC) grid-connected solar PV projects with battery storage in Andaman & Nicobar Islands. The projects—to be implemented on turnkey basis in Havelock Island (Swaraj Dweep) and Neil Island (Shaheed Dweep)—would be awarded through competitive bidding followed by reverse auction.
The recent 500 MW grid-connected solar capacity tendered by the Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) was oversubscribed by 250 MW. A reverse auction will now be held on October 9. The capacity is part of the previous 1 GW tendered capacity, which was oversubscribed by around 800 MW, but cancelled due to high tariffs
Neyveli Lignite Corporation India Ltd (NLCIL) has re-tendered the 2 x 10 MW grid-connected solar PV power project with the reduced 8 MWh battery energy storage capacity. It has also invited bids to lend INR 25.52 billion ($394 million) in finance required for the proposed 709 MW solar project in Tamil Nadu state.
