Ministry of Power (MoP) has issued “Guidelines for Tariff Based CompetitiveBidding Process for Procurement of Power from Grid Connected Solar PV PowerProjects” vide Gazette Resolution dated 03.08.2017. These Guidelines have beenissued under the provisions of Section 63 of the Electricity Act, 2003 for long termprocurement of electricity by the ‘Procurers’, from grid-connected Solar PV PowerProjects, having size of 5 MW and above, through competitive bidding. This RfSdocument has been prepared in line with the above Guidelines issued by MoPdated 03.08.2017.
As part of the Government of India’s target to achieve a cumulative capacity of 100GW Solar PV installation by the year 2022, SECI wishes to invite proposals forsetting up of grid connected Solar PV project at Dondaicha Solar Park atDondaicha, Dist. Dhule, Maharashtra on “Build Own Operate” (B-O-O) basis for anaggregate capacity of 250 MW. SECI shall enter into a Power Purchase Agreement(PPA) with the successful Bidder selected based on this RfS for purchase of SolarPower for a period of 25 years based on the terms, conditions and provisions of theRfS.
The Projects provide fordeployment of Solar PV Technology. However, the selection of projects would betechnology agnostic within the technology mentioned above. Crystalline Silicon orThin Film or CPV, with or without Trackers can be installed. Only commerciallyestablished and operational technologies can be used, to minimize the technologyrisk and to achieve the timely commissioning of the Projects.
