SECI has released RFS for Phase IV of rooftop solar PV projects.
MNRE had launched a pilot scheme for promotion of large scale grid-connected roof top solar PV projects and SECI was designated as implementing agency for this scheme. The pilot scheme with aggregate capacity of 50 MWp in various states across the country envisages installation of grid-connected roof top solar PV projects on the roofs of government offices, PSUs, Commercial establishments, hospitals, cold storages, warehouses, industry and educational institutions and private houses.
Under the Phase IV, The size of each project should be in the range of 10kWp to 500 kWp for commercial / Industrial sector consumers’. However, the projects below 10 kWp may also be considered for residential sector. One project can comprise of one roof only.
The allocation of 50 MW rooftop PV capacity will be done in two parts: Part A (40 MW) and Part B (10 MW):
In Part A (Owner/CAPEX Model) the bidder will apply for 50% of tendered capacity only for each state which means there will be two successful bidders in each state.

Successful Bidder will be required to execute the project capacity allocated in each city of that state. The maximum allowable Project cost for this Model is Rs.90/- per Wp.
In Part B (RESCO Model) fixed subsidy of Rs.2.7 Crore per MWp will be made available. Bidders will have to furnish year on year tariff for 25 years starting from the date of commissioning of the Project. Tariff stream quoted by the bidder will be then levellized with a discounting rate of 11%. Capacity will be allocated based on the lowest levellized tariff for 25 years quoted by the bidder for each state. The successful bidder has to execute the project capacity allocated in each city of that state. Maximum allowable levellized tariff for this part is Rs.6.75 Per kWh.
A bidder can apply and is eligible to apply for a maximum capacity of 5 MWp only for both Part-A (CAPEX model) and/or Part B (RESCO model) put together.
