Last month we reported that Maharashtra’s 1 GW solar tender, which saw the state extend the final submission deadline to January 22, 2019, from January 3, 2019, earlier, besides a revision in the ceiling price to Rs 2.90 from Rs 2.80, had seen an impressive response.
At the time, total demand had come in at 1900 MW, almost twice the tendered figure, with Adani Power and Avaada power alone putting in bids for 500 MW each. Besides them, other firms that have made bids include ACME for 300 MW, Renew Power for 300 MW, Orange Renewables for 100 MW, and Aqua Pumps for 50 MW.
Maharashtra was also in the news late last year for its tender of 1400 MW across 30 circles in the state, besides a 1 GW tender for providing solar power purely for a dedicated agricultural grid.
