The Indian state of Punjab offers 1.2 GW of solar power



The Indian state of Punjab has issued a tender for 1.2 GW of solar power, inviting potential bidders to set up grid-connected solar projects across the region.

Punjab State Power Corp. Ltd. (PSPCL) has launched two separate tenders to procure 1 GW and 200 MW solar energy of solar projects connected to the grid. Bidders selected by PSPCL can tzo set up sun- projects anywhere in Punjab.

As of 31 May 2023, Punjab had installed 1,176.79 MW of cumulative solar capacity, including 831.75 MW of ground-mounted solar projects, 264.19 MW of rooftop and 80.85 MW of off-grid/KUSUM plants.

In separate development NTPC Renewable Energy has floated a tender for the design, procurement, fabrication, supply, commissioning, testing and ten-year comprehensive operation and maintenance of a 200 kW solar-based hybrid micro-grid project at Chusul, Ladakh. The goal of the project is to provide round-the-clock renewable energy power generation in Chushul.

It includes a 3.2 MWp solar power plant, a 1 MW hydrogen production system (PEM electrolyser) that produces 160 kg of hydrogen per day, a hydrogen storage facility with a capacity of 200 kg of usable hydrogen, and a battery energy storage system (BESS) of approximately 300 kW/1200 kWh and PEM – fuel cell system that produces 200 kW of electrical power.
