#2 The second largest tender was floated by PTC India to procure 500 MW of hybrid renewable energy (Tranche-I), with a greenshoe option for an additional 500 MW, on a long-term basis for 25 years. PTC said it planned to procure renewable power to the tune of 5,000 MW in the next 2-3 years in tranches of 500-1,000 MW each. The tender was floated to assess the market potential and procure power from interested hybrid renewable energy suppliers. At a later stage, based on the response, PTC may also sign a bilateral power purchase agreement (PPA) with the most competitive source.
