SECI Rooftop Scheme

The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has reissued its tender for its 97.5 MW grid-connected rooftop solar PV systems scheme for government buildings in different states/UTs under CAPEX/RESCO model.

As per the new Request for Selection (RfS), the bidding process under this scheme is for 10 MW comprising of CAPEX Model (Part-A), 85 MW comprising of RESCO Model (Part-B) and 2.5 MWp comprising of CAPEX Model (PART-C).

The entire bidding capacity of 97.5 MW has been divided into 4 different zones i.e zone-1, zone-2, zone-3 and zone-4. In any particular zone, there will be only one single price for all the bidders under CAPEX Models (i.e. PART-A and PART- C, separately) (Project Cost: Rs Per kWp) and similarly, there will be only one single price under RESCO Model (Tariff: Rs Per kWh). Hence matching of L-1 price needs to be adhered upon (for each part and zone separately). Zone wise list of states are mentioned in the RfS document. zone-1, zone-2 and zone-3 are for general category states whereas Zone-4 is for special category states.

The last date for bid submission is September 30, 2019, and the techno-commercial bids will be opened on October 1, 2019. A pre-bid meeting has been scheduled for September 11, 2019, to address the concerns raised by the prospective bidders. All bidders must submit an Earnest Money Deposit of Rs 400 per kW along with their response to the RfS.

The scope of work for the selected bidders will include the site survey, design, manufacture, supply, erection, testing and commissioning including a warranty of the grid-connected rooftop solar systems in different zones of India. The developers will also be required operation and maintenance (O & M) of the project for a period of 5 years under PART-A and PART-C and for a period of 25 years under PART-B after commissioning of the project.

Additionally, a bidder can bid for PART-A or PART-B as per the eligibility criterion of RfS. New Entrepreneur bidders can bid only for PART-C. Bidders can also bid in both Part A & Part B together. Any bidder eligible for participation in either PART-A or PART-B is not allowed to participate in PART-C.

Under PART-A, the bidder can apply for a minimum aggregate capacity of 100 kWp and maximum aggregate capacity of 1 MW. Under PART-B, the bidder can apply for a minimum aggregate capacity of 1 MW and the maximum aggregate capacity of 10 MW. Under Part-C, the bidder (i.e. new entrepreneur) can apply for the minimum aggregate capacity of 50 kWp and maximum aggregate capacity of 250 kWp.
