SECI floats tender for grid-linked 1GW rooftop solar

As part of efforts to achieve the Centre’s target of 40 GW rooftop solar by 2022, Solar Energy Corp (SECI) has floated a tender of 1000 MW power for development of grid-connected rooftop solar capacity by utilising buildings of central ministries/departments.

“This would be the largest rooftop tender to be launched by SECI and is expected to give a big boost to the hugely potent rooftop solar power generation segment,” the New & Renewable Energy Ministry said in a statement today.

According to the statement, the 1000 MW tender, one of the largest globally, is a move to rapidly escalate rooftop solar capacity in the country, and comes in quick succession to SECI’s earlier tender of 500 MW capacity, targeting buildings in the residential/institutional and social sectors.

SECI is the leading PSU in the rooftop solar segment and has already commissioned over 54 MW capacity of rooftop solar projects under multiple government schemes.

The upcoming 1000 MW tender is especially targeted at utilising the numerous buildings of the central government ministries/departments.

The highlight of this tender is its innovative ‘Achievement-Linked Incentives Scheme’ wherein the incentives in terms of capital subsidy shall be provided on the basis of performance achieved by designated ministries/departments against their committed targets in the given timespan. Read more…
