The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has issued guidelines for the tariff-based competitive bidding process for procuring power from 2.5 GW of the interstate transmission system (ISTS) connected wind projects blended with solar power.
According to the document, the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) will act as the nodal agency for the implementation of the program. The selection of projects under this program will be through a bidding process followed by an e-reverse auction. The wind and solar projects may be located at the same location or nearby, but the individual wind and solar components of the project will inject power into the grid at a single point. The tariff for the project will be determined by SECI through a transparent e-bidding process.Source : https://mercomindia.com/mnre-gidelines-for-procuring/
