Maharashtra State Power Generation Company (MAHAGENCO) has invited an expression of interest (EOI) to set up a 500 MW solar park in Dondaicha and to add 1,500 MW of capacity for the solarisation of agriculture feeders across Maharashtra. To this end, MAHAGENCO aims to construct solar projects ranging from 2 MW to 50 MW capacity. These projects will not only help the utility save costs as solar tariffs have fallen below thermal power but also meet its RPO targets. The RPO target for Maharashtra for 2017-18 is at 12.5 per cent, of which 2 per cent is solar. Meanwhile, the RPO obligation set for 2018-19 is at 13.75 per cent, with 2.75 per cent for solar.
