Maharashtra’s 1,350 MW solar auction receives poor response

MSEDCL had floated 30 district-wise tenders on August 31, 2019 for procuring 1,350 MW of solar power in 30 circles with project sizes ranging from 25 MW to 50 MW. Despite repeated extensions of the bid submission deadline, the response to the tender has been very poor. Against the total bid capacity of 1,350 MW, only one bid for 5 MW was received and that too from only one bidder, Kiran Renewables. The power procured from this project will be counted towards the fulfilment of MSEDCL’s solar RPO.
