India : SECI Lowers Tariff Cap in its Tender for 10 MW of Solar Projects

The Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) has issued amendments to its tender for setting up 10 MW of solar power projects at Bagru in Jaipur district of Rajasthan.

In its amendments, it lowered the maximum tariff payable to the project developer to ₹3.14 (~$0.042)/kWh for 25 years from ₹3.20 (~$0.043)/kWh, earlier. It added that bids would be evaluated for each project based on the tariff quoted and the bidder that quotes higher than ₹3.14 (~$0.042)/kWh would be rejected.

Among other amendments, SECI also changed the connection point of the project. The project is now to be connected at a voltage level of 33kV of the 33kV/220kV Rajasthan State Industrial Development and Investment Corporation (RIICO) grid substation at Bagru where it interconnects to the Rajasthan Rajya Vidyut Prasaran Nigam Limited’s (RVPNL) or the state transmission utility’s (STU) network.
