The state’s Solar Power Policy 2015 was due to expire since April 1, 2020. With a 9-month extension, solar power plants installed and commissioned till December end become eligible for the benefits and incentives declared under this policy.
The solar plant—to be set up under a ‘build-own-operate’ basis—is part of the Dholera Solar Park capacity tendered by Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd under ninth phase. July 16 is the last date to lodge the interest.
The integrated power producer’s renewable capacity will now swell to 3,457 MW. Of this, 2,637 MW (932 MW wind and 1705 MW solar) is operational and 820 MW solar (including the latest 120 MW won from Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited) under implementation.
The inefficiency and irregularity of cleaning the solar panels manually, and the associated use of water defeat the purpose of shifting to renewable energies.
Plug-and-production facilities and labour law exemptions for 1200 days are among the decisions announced by the chief minister of the Indian state which contributes 7.9% to India’s gross domestic product and 20% to the overall exports.
Findings from solar installation sites in Gujarat and Rajasthan and some suggestions to handle the issues.
Over 21.6% or 3 GW of solar and wind installations will get delayed due to supply and labour disruptions caused by the ongoing Covid-19 lockdown, according to the analysts which in a January report forecast the country to add over 15 GW of renewable capacity this year.
The project involves laying over 300 km of 765 kV double-circuit transmission lines connecting 765/400 kV Lakadia substation to Vadodara substation in Gujarat.
Tariff ceiling is set as Rs 2.92 per unit for the grid-connected projects which are to be developed on ‘build own operate’ basis in 1 GW Dholera Solar Park. Bidding closes on April 18.
