Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a tender for 250MW of solar capacity at the Dondaicha Solar Park (Phase-1) in Dhule, Maharashtra.

The capacity will be split into five projects of 50MW each, with projects set up on a Build Own Operate (BOO) basis.

Power procured by SECI from the project will be sold to the State Discom Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Co. Limited (MSEDCL).

Power purchase agreements (PPAs) will be signed for a period of 25 years at a maximum tariff of INR2.93/kWh. Bidders must only bid for a single tariff across all the projects they bid for.

SECI has recently been concentrating on tenders for interstate transmission system (ISTS)-connected projects outside solar parks, but the government's solar park programme is still ongoing with a target of 40GW by 2021-22.

SECI also recently issued a tender for the development of 750MW of grid-connected solar projects in Rajasthan.
