Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA) has issued a request for selection (RfP) for a 200MW solar park to be awarded through competitive bidding.
The power produced from the winning projects will be sold to the distribution company UPPCL or to third-parties under the open access scheme. The minimum project size will be 50MW and the maximum 200MW.
The deadline for submissions is 10 December this year.
Uttar Pradesh drew lowest bids of more than 3 rupees per unit for its latest 500MW solar auction in October, but these were still significantly lower than tariffs from its 1GW auction that was annulled over the summer.
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.
