The Uttar Pradesh Solar Park (UP Solar Park) will have a total installed capacity of 600 MW and will be located in the districts of Jalaun, Allahabad, Mirzapur and Kanpur Dehat. The implementing agency for this park is Lucknow Solar Power Development Corporation Limited, a joint venture between SECI and Uttar Pradesh New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (UPNEDA).
SECI has issued a request for selection (RfS) document. The projects will be tendered under the National Solar Mission (NSM) Phase-II, Batch-IV, Tranche-XIII, Part-B (open category), which means it is possible to use imported solar modules. Out of the 275 MW capacity, 225 MW will come up in the district of Jalaun and 50 MW in Kanpur Dehat.
The projects will be developed on a build-own-operate basis. All power generated by these plants will be bought by SECI for a period of 25 years for a tariff not exceeding 3.43 INR ($0.0541) per kWh. SECI will sell the solar power to Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited.
