Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Limited (KREDL) is making remarkable strides in its objective to harness renewable energy resources for the utmost benefit and boost the Government of India's (GoI) target of attaining 500 GW of RE capacity by 2030.

The key initiative is the development of a massive 500 MW alternating current (MWAC) Solar Park in Aurad taluk, Bidar District, Karnataka, utilizing the Interstate Transmission System (ISTS) method.

Regarding this, the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) finalized the site selection for setting up the 765/400/220-kilovolt (kV) Bidar Pooling Station in Malegaon village of Aurad Taluk.

Subsequently, REC Power Development and Consultancy Ltd has initiated the tender process for the Transmission Service provider (TSP) via a tariff-based competitive bidding (TBCB) mechanism.

The TSP will develop a 765 kV transmission line and set up the pooling station dedicated to the solar energy zone in Bidar.

Karnataka is abundantly blessed with renewable energy potential, and KREDL is committed to tapping into these resources to their fullest extent. In line with this objective, KREDL is planning to engage a consultant to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the development of the 500 MW Solar Park in Bidar.

This move signifies KREDL's dedication to not only bolstering the state's renewable energy infrastructure but also contributing significantly to GoI's ambitious RE targets.
