SECI floats tender for grid-linked 1GW rooftop solar – Feedback

As part of efforts to achieve the Centre’s target of 40 GW rooftop solar by 2022, Solar Energy Corp (SECI) has floated a tender of 1000 MW power for development of grid-connected rooftop solar capacity by utilising buildings of central ministries/departments.

“This would be the largest rooftop tender to be launched by SECI and is expected to give a big boost to the hugely potent rooftop solar power generation segment,” the New & Renewable Energy Ministry said in a statement today. According to the statement, the 1000 MW tender, one of the largest globally, is a move to rapidly escalate rooftop solar capacity in the country, and comes in quick succession to SECI’s earlier tender of 500 MW capacity, targeting buildings in the residential/institutional and social sectors. SECI is the leading PSU in the rooftop solar segment and has already commissioned over 54 MW capacity of rooftop solar projects under multiple government schemes.
