The Noida Authority has informed that rooftop solar panels worth nearly 5 MW of generational capacity will be set up across the city. A request for proposal has already been prepared to invite tenders for the work, which is estimated to be completed in 12 months at a cost of around Rs 43 lakh, a senior official said.

“11 locations have been selected for installation of solar photovoltaic power plants that would together generate 5 MW of power,” Noida Authority General Manager Rajeev Tyagi said.

The decision is yet to be made through an e-tendering process for finalization of a contractor for the installation, operation and maintenance for 25 years of the 5 MW solar photovoltaic plants, Tyagi said. The power plants will be set up as per the Resco model, according to the official.

In Resco, the bidders intend to take a rooftop owned by some other entity on mutually agreed terms and conditions, including lease agreement from the rooftop owners, and enter into the power purchase agreement (PPA) with rooftop owner for the supply of solar power, said the officials.

In October, the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) had issued a tender, inviting bids from eligible parties for setting up electric vehicle (EV) charging stations along the Noida-Greater Noida Aqua Line.

As per the RfS, every public charging station must have an exclusive transformer with all the related substation equipment, including safety appliance, a 33/11 kV line/cables with associated equipment required for line termination, or metering. And, each station must also have one or more electric kiosks with the installation of all the charger models—fast, moderate, and slow. The successful bidder will also be responsible for providing a fast charging facility at the public charging station.

Last year, Radite Energy had bagged a 1.4 MW rooftop solar project from Amplus Solar for India Expo Centre in Noida.
