SJVN Green Invites Bids for Land to Set Up Solar Projects in Punjab

SJVN Green Energy (SGEL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SJVN, has invited bids to purchase or lease 800 acres of land in Punjab for setting up solar power projects up to 200 MW capacity.

The purchase or lease, which will be for 28 years, will include the requisite statutory clearances, chain-link fencing around the periphery of the land, and connectivity with the state transmission utility (STU).

The last date to submit the bids is July 23, 2024. Bids will be opened the same day.

Bidders must entities registered in India. Joint ventures or consortiums are not allowed.

Bidders must submit ₹5,000 (~$59.8) as the cost of the tender document and also provide an earnest money deposit based on the land size:

They may offer multiple land parcels up to a maximum of 1,200 acres. Each single connected land parcel must be either 200 acres or a multiple of 200 acres up to 800 acres.

Land parcels less than 200 acres will not be accepted.

If the offered land is not an exact multiple of 200 acres, the area will be rounded to the nearest multiple, and the price bid will be prorated accordingly. Land parcels that combine outright purchase with leased land will be rejected.

The land can be within a solar park but must be transferable to SJVN Green Energy on an outright purchase basis.

The nearest point of the land parcel must be within 15 km of the proposed STU substation for 200-acre parcels, or within 20 km for 400-acre or larger parcels.

The estimated spare capacity at the proposed STU substation must be at least 50 MW for 200-acre parcels, 100 MW for 400-acre parcels, 150 MW for 600-acre parcels and 200 MW for 800-acre parcels.

The land must have a minimum annual global horizontal irradiance of 1,650 kWh/m² and must be a single connected patch and connected to a drivable road.

The land must not be restricted by the central or state government for solar power development, such as being in a wildlife-protected area, defense establishment, national park, or other protected area.

In May, SGEL invited bids for the manufacture and supply of solar modules with a capacity of 376.60 MW for the GUVNL (Phase-XIV) solar power project.

Recently, Swelect Energy Systems, Grew Energy, and ReNew Photovoltaics were declared winners in Solar Energy Corporation of India’s auction to manufacture, test, package, forward, supply, and transport 400 MW domestically manufactured solar modules.
