Pursuing an ambitious renewable energy target, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has now issued new guidelines to provide a framework for procurement of wind power through a transparent process of bidding including standardisation of the process and defining of roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders.
The guidelines aim to “enable the Distribution Licensees to procure wind power at competitive rates in a cost effective manner,” said an official statement.
The guidelines are applicable for procurement of wind power from grid-connected wind power projects (WPP) of 5 MW and above at one site with minimum bid capacity of 25 MW for intra-state projects and individual size of 50 MW and above at one site with minimum bid capacity of 50 MW for inter-state projects.
