SECI Tenders for Setting Up 1,070 MW Grid-Connected Solar Projects in Rajasthan

The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has announced that it has issued a tender for setting up 1,070 MW grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) power projects in Rajasthan.

It further that developers will have to submit a single bid for any quantity beginning from a minimum size of 10 MW going up to 1,070 MW. The projects would be set up on a B-O-O basis and can be positioned anywhere in the state.

SECI would arrive into a 25-year power purchase agreement with the nominated bidder and retail the power obtained to Rajasthan Urja Vikas Nigam Limited.

Nonetheless, bidders would be free to select the transmission utility substations for the interconnection of the project to the grid.
