India’s first tender for providing round the clock (RTC) solar power disovered the lowest tariff of Rs 2.9 per kwh (unit). ReNew Power was the winning bidder with the whole 400 megawatt (Mw) capacity. Other bidders were Greenko, Ayana and HES Renewable.
The tariff would escalate by three per cent annually for 15 years taking the levellised (average) tariff of the project to Rs 3.6 per unit, said industry executives. This rate is closer to the average rate of thermal power in India.
