The government of Indonesia is reportedly planning to issue a tender next month seeking bids to install 150MW worth of PV plants in the country. The tender, which will be based on the new FiT, is expected to last for a period of two months.
The government said the FiT was intended to promote the construction of new solar facilities in remote areas of Indonesia, such as on Flores Island in East Nusa Tenggara and few regions in Papua, reports the Jakarta Globe.
The government will retain its competitive bidding process for new solar power facilities, so the higher FiT rate may not be applicable to bid winners.
State owned energy regulator PLN will purchase the electricity generated from facilities receiving the FiT.
