REIL Tenders For Solar Plants At Training, Educational Institutions in Rajasthan

The Rajasthan Electronics and Instruments Limited (REIL) has come out with a tender for the “Survey, Design, Supply of BOS, Installation – Commissioning and 5 years maintenance of various capacity Grid Connected SPV Power Plant(s) at various Training Institutions / Educational Institutions in various districts in the state of Rajasthan” .

A pre-bid meeting will be held on may 5, while the last date for submitting online bids is May 10, 2021.

Selected Bidders have to submit 3% amount of Contract Value in the form of Bank guarantee of RBI Scheduled banks valid for 66 months from date of handing over (Net Metering) of project. The bidder shall submit the PBG before handing over the project.

Key qualification criteria for bidders include having installed & commissioned at least one Grid Connected Solar PV Power Plant of capacity not less than 100 kWp which should have been commissioned in FY 2019-20, 2020-21 in any Govt. Department / Institutions and shall submit 6 months successful operation certificate.

The bidder also needs experience of completion of at  least 50 nos. of SPV installation sites (>10kWp) in any one of last two financial years in Govt. Department / Institutions.

The bidder will need cumulative experience of >/= 4000kWp Grid Connected SPV Power Plants/systems in last three years which should have been commissioned in FY 2018-19, 2019- 20, 2020-21 in any Govt. Department / Institutions. Out of this at least 1000 kWp shall be installed in the state of Rajasthan.

Minimum average annual turnover in solar field is Rs 6 crores in past three years. In CAPEX mode.

Interestingly, REIL will be providing the SPV modules for the projects.

The move by REIL in Rajasthan needs to be welcomed for the segment it targets. Training and educational institutions are actually the low lying fruit for rooftop solar conversion, and across states, especially laggards like those in east India, going for solar rooftop in these makes complete sense. Even in states like Haryana and Punjab, even adding a storage component to these systems would still work out, since power supply remains undependable in rural areas. RERC has also invited funding to support solarisation of schools in the state.
