SECI extends bids for 150 MW floating solar project in UP

Solar Corporation of India (SECI) has extended bids for a 150 MW floating solar tender in Uttar Pradesh; and for a 2 MW PV plant coupled with 1 MW of storage in Himachal Pradesh.

Last month, SECI floated a tender for 150 MW of floating solar to be developed over the Rihand Dam in the Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh.

In total, three 50 MW grid connected projects are set to be developed. It has extended the date of bid submissions to October 25.

Till now, India has installed less than 1 MW of floating PV, but the 10 GW target indicated by SECI has set the foundation for rapid growth.

Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd. is a company of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Government of India, established to facilitate the implementation of Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission. It is the only Central Public Sector Undertaking dedicated to the solar energy sector.
