The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has invited online bids for setting up of solar plants worth 2 MW in Jammu and Kashmir. This is now the fourth notification in three months by the nodal agency for setting up of solar plants at army posts in Jammu and Kashmir, but it is yet to issue a tender or RfS.

The solar projects will be developed at two army posts in the state, 1 MW each at the army post in Siachen and an army post in Partapur. The detailed Request for Selection Document (RfS) shall be available for downloading latest by April 12, 2019, onwards on www.tcil-indiaelectronictender.com.

The brief scope of work for the winning bidders will include the design, engineering, procurement, supply, construction, erection, testing, commissioning of the 02 MW Solar PV Power Plant. The solar power developers will also be responsible for the successful operation and maintenance (O&M) of the project.

SECI first issued a notification for the projects in February but has since only followed it up with three more notifications for selection of solar power developers.

Recently, the nodal agency for renewable adoption ion the country had issued another NIT for setting up of 14 MW solar PV power plant with linked 42 MWh of Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) at two locations in Jammu and Kashmir. The two systems (each 7 MW solar plant with 21 MWh BESS facility) will be developed at the Leh and Kargil divisions of the state.

The lands for setting up of solar projects with battery storage will be facilitated by Ladakh Renewable Energy Development Agency (LREDA) and Kargil Renewable Energy Development Agency (KREDA) in their respective regions.

SECI will be responsible for fund management i.e. release of Viability Gap Funding (VGF) and will also monitor the performances post commissioning of the projects.
