Solar energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a tender for an 8MW grid-connected rooftop solar project at Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi, in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
The tender is for the design, engineering, supply, construction, erection, testing and commissioning of the plant, with five years of O&M services.
Back in May, energy minister Piyush Goyal challenged the German city of Munich to race with Varanasi, the world’s oldest city, to become the first city to be fully powered by green energy.
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.
