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.
The selected bidders are required to install and commission solar-based water pumping systems in various villages and towns of Jaipur district. Bidding closes on November 5.
A report by Indian ratings agency CRISIL points to a rising rate of tender failures, an inconsistent policy approach from central and state governments and restrictive solar energy tariff caps and says India could have just 104 GW of renewables capacity by 2022.
The rooftop solar project—commissioned under Rajasthan’s solar net-metering policy—will meet about 30% of Dynamic Cables’ energy requirement.
