SECI has amended the request for selection (RfS) for ISTS-connected wind-solar hybrid power projects under Tranche I. The amendment has reduced the project capacity from 2,500 MW to 1,200 MW while the tariff ceiling has been reduced from Rs 2.93 per kWh to Rs 2.60 per kWh. The maximum bid capacity has been increased from 500 MW to 600 MW. The scheduled period for the commissioning of projects, which is 18 months, will now be calculated from the effective date of the PPA and not from the date of issuance of the letter of award (LoA). Also, the annual effective capacity utilisation factor (CUF) has been reduced from the existing 40 per cent to 30 per cent.
