The Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Drainage Board has invited EoIs to set up floating solar power projects over reservoirs in three regions of Karnataka–Manvi, Sirguppa and Ballari city. The board intends to lease 60-70 acres of area for a total period of 30 years through urban local bodies in the cities. The projects would be developed under the BOO model on a revenue sharing basis. The power generated from the floating solar plants will be sold to Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited. According to the tender guidelines, interested developers with prior experience of setting up similar projects can submit their proposals after paying a sum of Rs 5,900.
