The Madhya Pradesh government has objected to a decision of the Narmada Control Authority (NCA) to halt production of electricity at the River Bed Power House of the Sardar Sarovar Project (SSP-RBPH).
The Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Limited (GUVNL) has floated two solar tenders for a total capacity of 950 MW. Both the tenders are for projects to be developed in the state’s solar parks. Following are the details:
Gujarat Industries Power Company Ltd (GIPCL) Friday said it has commissioned a 75 mega watt (MW) solar power project in Gujarat in a phased manner.
Energy Major Tata Power said that company wholly-owned Subsidiary Tata Power Renewable Energy Limited (TPREL), has received a Letter of Award (LOA) from Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam
The tender for 1,000 MW solar power capacity to be built at Dholera Solar Park is under-subscribed by 700MW as only two companies have placed bids for just 300 MW. Despite the extension of submission deadline four times, this tender could not attract more bidders, said people aware of the development.
The Gujarat government, which has promised to buy solar power from farmers at a maximum rate of Rs 7 per unit under Suryashakti Kisan Yojana (SKY) launched last June, purchased 52 per cent of solar power from private
Gujarat’s discom model for power should be duplicated across India, says ex-coal secretary Anil Swarup
Anil Swarup, a former secretary in the Ministry of Coal, Harry Dhaul, director general of Independent Power Producers Association of India (IPPAI) and Dr. Pramod Deo, former chairperson of CERC discussed the prospects of the power sector.
The rise in temperature has pushed up the demand for electricity across Gujarat with an increased number of consumers switching on their air conditioners, fans and coolers to get respite from heat. The state’s power demand during peak hours surged to a month’s high level on Thursday.
The Power Grid Corporation of India Limited (PGCIL) has awarded a ₹1.62 billion (~$22.87 million) contract to GE T&D India Ltd. to extend 765 kV air-insulated substation (AIS) and set up a new 400 kV/220 kV gas-insulated substation (GIS) at Bhuj, Gujarat.
In a setback for Gujarat’s renewable energy drive, its latest solar auction of 1000 MW got no bids at all because developers felt the ceiling tariff it had set was too low.
