Wind sector again receives tepid response

SECI has invited bid submission for 1.2 GW of Wind projects, where projects can be located in any part of India and will be linked to the interstate transmission system to supply power. NTPC last year issued wind tender that received poor response from developers due to difficulty experienced in getting the tariff approved by the state regulatory commissions. In amidst of tepid response ceiling tariff was raised from Rs 2.85 per unit to Rs 2.93 to encourage developer’s participation.

Developers still seeks the tariff to be an aggressive one, where developers still airs reluctance from state govt to lease land for projects and inadequate evacuation infrastructure. Unless developers are assured of finding suitable solutions to prevailing issues till then such tenders will receive a poor response.
