Bundelkhand University Invites Bids for 1.2 MW Rooftop Solar Project

Bids must be submitted by April 8, 2024


Bundelkhand University (BU) in Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh, has invited bids from solar developers to set up a 1.2 MW grid-connected rooftop solar photovoltaic project.

The project will be executed under the renewable energy service company (RESCO) model, where the developer will invest its funds and sell solar power to the university at pre-determined tariffs.

The capacity can be extended up to 5 MW based on future requirements and system performance.

The last date to submit bids is April 8, 2024. Bids will be opened on the same day.

The successful bidder will be responsible for the design, financing, equipment supply, installation, grid connectivity, testing, commissioning, and comprehensive operation & maintenance for 25 years.

Bidders must quote for levelized/fixed tariffs for 25 operational years. The successful bidder must ensure that the power purchase agreement is signed within 15 days of acceptance of the letter inviting consent for an agreement.

The tender mandates the use of solar modules manufactured in India by domestic firms.

Bidders must pay a non-refundable tender fee of ₹10,000 (~$120) and submit an earnest money deposit of ₹200,000 (~$2,400). Bidders should not be blacklisted by government or semi-government organizations in the last five years.

The tender document accessed by Mercom, did not specify the technical or financial qualification criteria required to participate in the tender process.

Earlier this month, Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak, Haryana, floated a tender for designing, supplying, installing, testing, and commissioning 1.5 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar power systems on various university buildings. The project will also be implemented under the RESCO model.

Previously, the National Forensic Sciences University, Gandhinagar, Gujarat, issued an expression of interest in setting up 1 MW grid-connected rooftop solar projects on its campus buildings.
