The selected developers must take approval for each separate electrical connection for interfacing the project with electrical loads from the distribution licensee and state electrical inspector for interfacing with diesel generators during grid voltage failure. Net metering, as per the guidelines of the Goa Electricity Department, will apply.

The selected developers must submit a detailed structural design and drawings of all the sites at the GEDA office within 15 days of the acceptance of the work order. If the project is not completed on time or does not start within 30 days from the work order, the contract will be terminated.

They must ensure the minimum average expected electrical energy generation of 1,450 kWh per kWp system on the low-tension side for the first five years to achieve a 16.5% capacity utilization factor.

To be eligible, bidders should have commissioned grid-connected solar projects having a minimum capacity of 200 kW at a single location or two projects of 150 kW and a cumulative capacity of more than 1 MW during the last three years.

Bidders must have a minimum average annual turnover of ₹10 million (~$122,887). They must furnish a certificate from a chartered accountant mentioning the financial turnover for the last two years.

In March, GEDA issued a tender for the design, supply, installation, testing, and commissioning of grid-connected rooftop solar projects of 1.65 MW cumulative capacity atop various government buildings in Panaji.

According to Mercom’s India Solar Tender Tracker, GEDA has floated 219 MW rooftop solar project tenders in Goa.
