SECI 97.5 MW Rooftop Solar

The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has extended the timelines for the implementation of the 97.5 MW grid-connected rooftop solar PV systems scheme for government buildings in different zones of India. The projects are to be developed under CAPEX or RESCO model.

In its notification, SECI stated that based on the approval accorded by the competent authority, the lockdown due to COVID-19 has been treated as Force Majeure and it has been thus decided to grant a suitable time extension for the capacities allocated under the RfS for the rooftop scheme for government buildings.

The revised timelines for the successful bidder to complete the roofs identification and survey, submission of project sanction documents as per the requirement of SECI, and the work of design, manufacture, engineering, supply, storage, civil work, erection, testing, and commissioning is January 20, 2021, in zone 1, zone 2, Zone 3, and by April 20, 2021, in the case of Zone 4.

List of Winners (Zone 1 and 2)

The time for submission of project sanction documents by the successful bidders to SECI will be up to October 20, 2020, in the case of zone 1, zone 2, and Zone 3, and up to January 20, 2021, in case of Zone-4 projects, which can be extended depending upon the merits of the case.

List of Winners (Zone 3 and 4)

Previously, the projects were to be commissioned within nine months (RESCO projects) and 12 months (CAPEX projects) from the date of issue of the letter of allocation. The tender documents allowed a six-month extension, if necessary.

The Letter of Awards (LoA) for the projects selected under the RfS were issued in January. SECI had issued a final zone-wise list of successful bidders/ developers under the tender for the scheme.

The total capacity of 97.5 MW tendered had been divided into three categories, 10 MW comprising of CAPEX Model (Part-A), the second is 85 MW consisting of RESCO Model (Part-B), and third is 2.5 MW comprising of CAPEX Model (Part-C).
