The Request for Selection (RfS) for 200MW of PV at Pavagada Solar Park, Karnataka, comes under NSM Phase II, Batch IV, Tranche XIV. There are four projects of 50MW capacity each up for grabs.
Projects from both tenders will be set up on a Build Own Operate (BOO) basis.

The PV IndiaTech 2020 conference will continue to bring together all key domestic and overseas stakeholders, including government bodies, investors, and the leading companies today from manufacturing to O&M and asset management. To thrive globally as a major PV power beyond 2020, India has to succeed in unlocking its potential both to manufacture and to lay claim to quality utility-scale solar farms that are providing high returns on investment to site owners.
