SECI has announced a tender for the Pavagada solar power park in Karnataka. A capacity of 200 MW is on offer under the open VGF category with a fixed maximum tariff of Rs 2.93/kWh (¢4.6/kWh). The central government, through NTPC, auctioned 300 megawatts of capacity at the solar park at a tariff of Rs 4.80/kWh (¢7.6/kWh). A 200 MW tender was launched last year but had to be cancelled. Karnataka, itself, launched a tender for 860 megawatts last month.
