The electricity department of the Union Territory of
Puducherry has invited an Expression of Interest (EoI) for 30 MW of solar. The
bid-submission deadline is April 28, 2017.
The Government of Puducherry proposes
to buy 30 MW of solar at a tariff determined by the Joint Electricity
Regulatory Commission (JERC).
The power purchase agreement will be signed by the
Electricity Department of Puducherry, which has mandated that bidders who have
prior experience commissioning solar projects of minimum 5 MW capacity can
participate in the EoI. It has also been stated that any bid below 10 MW will
not be considered.
Bidders can choose to construct the project elsewhere and
supply power to Puducherry, but preference will be given to bidders who plan to
construct the project within the boundaries of Puducherry.
