Ceiling tariff is fixed at Rs 3.13 per unit for the 30 MW grid-connected projects that are to be set up by state-run generators using domestically made equipment. The 940 KW of off-grid solar capacity is tendered under state budgetary support for year 2019-20.
The solar plants commissioned at Dibrugarh (Assam), Gaya (Bihar) and Gondia (Maharashtra) take the Kolkata based module manufacturer and EPC contractor’s cumulative airport project portfolio to more than 4 MW.
Prospective developers have until November 18 to submit bids for standalone PV systems, with inverter and lead-acid batteries, at various government high schools, health sub-centres and Anganwadi Centres.
Amtronics’ Tech City facility—constructed to a 75,000 sq.ft footprint—will use US firm Quantum Materials Corp’s technology to manufacture quantum dots and thin-film quantum dot solar cells.
A total of 476 tube wells are to be installed under four packages in districts under different divisions—Barpeta (100+80), Goalpara, Dhubri and Mankachar (151), and Kokrajhar (145). Bidding closes on November 1.
The $500k order follows the delivery of two high-volume quantum-dot production systems—valued at $1 million—to support roll-to-roll printing of thin-film solar cells at Assam facility.
Amtronics CC has paid U.S. firm Quantum Materials Corp an initial $500,000 as part of an agreement securing the right to manufacture quantum dots and thin-film quantum dot solar cells based on QMC technology for commercial supply in India. Construction has already started on a manufacturing facility in Assam, which will produce solar cells via a continuous, rapid-feed, flexographic-based printing process.
A state hamstrung by low irradiance, tough terrain and regular flooding is trying to move forward its energy transition. Previously, the largest solar project in Assam had a generation capacity of only 5 MW.
