Solar Energy Corp invites proposals for 10 MW roof top solar across six cities in India

According to reports, after Gujarat and Karnataka, the Union Government has gotten into the ‘rooftop solar’ movement.

The government-owned, not-for-profit company Solar Energy Corporation of India has invited proposals from solar developers and ‘renewable energy service companies’ to putting up rooftop solar photovoltaic systems in various cities.

Gujarat was the first State to have had private developers (SunEdison and Azure Power) to set up rooftop solar plants across cities. Solar Energy Corporation’s scheme of things is on a much larger scale.

For starters, it wants 10 MW on pilot basis, across six cities (Delhi 1 MW, Gurgaon 2, Chhattisgarh 2, Bangalore 2, Chennai 2 and Bhubhaneshwar 1).

The pilot scheme targets large area roofs of government offices, PSUs, commercial establishments, hospitals, cold storages, warehouses, industry and educational institutions, says SECI.

Bidders could apply for any capacity between 250 kW and 2 MW, and could aggregate the capacity over several buildings.
