Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has issued a request for selection (RfS) for 7.5GW of grid-connected solar PV projects, including implementation of power transmission and evacuation infrastructure, in the Leh and Kargil districts of Jammu & Kashmir state.
This includes three packages of 2.5GW each in the Ladakh region. Package (A) has been tentatively located in Zanskar sub-division and Tai Suru block of Kargil district, and Packages (B) and (C) are in the Hanley Khaldo area of Nyoma sub-division in Leh district. Bidders are eligible to bid for either one or all of the packages.
This is part of the central government’s scheme to set up 23GW of solar across the state. The scale of this plan and issues with developers also having to set up transmission infrastructure up to the delivery point were covered in a recent blog on PV Tech, including an engineer’s viewpoint highlighting potential safety and skilled manpower issues to name a few.
