Norwegian analyst Rystad Energy has predicted the stop on PV tenders in Karnataka will see Rajasthan become India’s leading solar state this year. The market research firm expects India to add only 10 GW new solar in 2020, however, and the same figure in 2021.
The project—located in Jodhpur district of Rajasthan—is being developed by the Indian developer’s special purpose vehicle Clean Solar Power (Jodhpur).
The Indian developer will hold majority 51% equity in the joint venture, while the balance will be held by GS E&C. The project is part of the capacity auctioned by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) under its tranche-IV earlier this year.
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.
The Israeli developer of module cleaning robots—which has secured over 7 GW of projects globally—will deploy its connected and water-free E4 solution for Fortum projects in Pavagada and Bhadla solar parks.
State-owned module maker Central Electronics Limited will bid for distributed grid connected solar projects in Rajasthan DISCOMs, in tie-up with another party that will carry out the installation work using its panels in case of award of contract.
The developer has achieved a first for India and announced another 3 GW of clean energy capacity will be on the way in the next 18 months.
November 21 is the last date to bid for the solar capacity which shall come up at NTPC’s Anta project in Baran district. Bids must be accompanied with Rs 20 million as bank guarantee.
An AFP newswire report this week said Anand Kumar had announced plans for 30 GW of generation capacity in Gujarat and 25 GW in Rajasthan, all of it along a 20-25km strip of semi arid land on the border.
