Developers have until September 30 to lodge their interest to install grid-connected floating solar plants on the water reservoir surface at Salaulim, Amthanem, Anjunem, and Chapoli Dams in the Indian State of Goa. Their scope of work also includes assessing the floating solar potential at each of these locations.
Developers and EPC contractors have until September 30 to apply for grid-connected, ground-mount solar installation under the Scheme that allows farmers to set up PV power plants on their uncultivable land and sell the generated power to the State Discoms. The plants, in sizes of 500 kW to 2 MW, shall come upon land within a 10 km radius of substations.
The French developer’s Indian arm has commissioned part of its 675 kW AC rooftop solar PV plant at the Goa Institute of Management (GIM) campus in Goa.
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.
Program aims to drive down the cost of solar electricity to a maximum of Rs2.50/kWh in a nation where tariffs vary wildly from state to state.
State energy minister Nilesh Cabral says householders will be offered the chance to reduce energy bills without any upfront cost by leasing roofspace to installers as part of plans to add 15 MW of solar capacity in Goa by March.
With the power minister hinting a new renewable energy tariff policy could be in the works, the federal agency responsible for solar – which has come under fire after the latest delay to a troubled PV manufacturing tender – has boasted of the volume of clean power it has signed deals for recently.
The chargers will be set up in six cities (Agra, Bengaluru, Goa, Hyderabad, Ranchi, Shimla) and along Delhi-Jaipur-Agra-Delhi and Mumbai-Pune-Mumbai highways.
