The agency had issued the tender for setting up of 1070 MW grid-connected solar PV power projects in Rajasthan earlier this month.

The Solar Power Developers (SPDs) selected by SECI based on this RfS, shall set up the solar PV projects on a Build Own Operate (BOO) basis in accordance with the provisions of this RfS document and standard Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). SECI shall enter into a PPA with the successful Bidder selected based on this RfS for purchase of the solar power generated by the projects for a period of 25 years based on the terms, conditions and provisions of the RfS.

As per the RfS, the power procured by SECI from the above Project has been provisioned to be sold to the State Buying Entity, i.e. Rajasthan Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (RUVNL), which shall be the Buying Entity under this RfS.

The Projects to be selected under this RfS shall be of minimum individual capacities of 10 MW and shall be set up in integral values, with a cumulative capacity of 1070 MW to be set up under the RfS. Already commissioned projects cannot be considered under this RfS. Projects under construction or projects which are not yet commissioned will, however, be considered, in case these projects are not already accepted under any other Central or State Schemes.

The last date for bid submission is August 31, 2020, and all bidders are required to submit an Earnest Money Deposit of Rs 4 lakh per MW of bid quoted capacity along with their bids.
