KSEB floats a tender for a 100 MW floating solar projects

The Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is inviting bids for wind and floating solar projects totaling 100 MW. All of these projects will be constructed in the state’s ten dams. According to the reports, bidding for wind energy projects will begin on February 24, 2022. The power rate for Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) repurchase is also set at Rs 4.10 per unit. 

The government estimates that the 100 MW wind energy projects will produce approximately Rs 8 billion in investments. Attappadi, Kanjikode, Vadakarapathy, and Ramakkalmedu are currently operating wind energy plants in Kerala. Furthermore, by the end of February 2022, bids for installing grid-connected floating solar projects in the ten dams will be open, and the department intends to generate a huge 100 MW from the reservoirs. 

In December 2021, KSEBL issued a request for qualification to set up 100 MW of grid-connected floating solar projects on a design, build, own, and operate model. For these floating solar projects, KSEBL is expected to enter 25-year power purchase agreements with solar developers, subject to a tariff approved by the Kerala State Electricity Regulatory Commission.
