Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL) has invited bids for setting up an aggregate 100 MW capacity of ground-mounted, grid-connected solar projects across four regions in the state.

The selected developers shall be responsible for setting up the projects on build-own-operate basis only for the procurement of solar power by APDCL for a period of 25 years.

The projects shall be awarded through tariff based competitive bidding followed by reverse auction. Tariff ceiling is fixed at Rs 4 per unit. Online bids can be submitted till February 21. Bids will be opened on February 24.

Capacity allocation is 25 MW each for Region 1 (Dhubri, Kokrajhar, Chirang, Baska, Udalguri and Darrang), Region 2 (Goalpara, Bongaigaon, Barpeta, Nalbari, Guwahati), Region-3 (Sonitpur, Nagaon, Morigaon, Karbi Anglong, NC Hills, Golaghat, Jorhat) and Region-4 (Cachar, Hailakandi, Karimganj).

The capacity of each solar power project shall be minimum 5 MW. Developers can bid for anywhere from 5 MW to all of the available 25 MW capacity for the region in 5 MW increments. The said MW capacity should mean the AC capacity rating at the delivery point.
