In a bid to boost renewable energy capacity in the state, the West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (WBSEDCL) has invited bids for 150 MW of wind-solar hybrid projects. The projects are part of the state government's plan to increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix.

According to the bid documents, the projects will be developed on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis, and the successful bidders will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of the projects. The power generated from the projects will be sold to WBSEDCL for a period of 25 years.

The projects will be located at three different sites in West Bengal, with a capacity of 50 MW each. The first site is located in the district of Purba Medinipur, the second site in Paschim Medinipur, and the third site in Bankura.

The tender requires the wind-solar hybrid projects to have a minimum capacity of 25 MW, with a maximum capacity of 50 MW. The projects must be connected to the nearest substation of WBSEDCL through a 132-kV transmission line.

The tender submission deadline is March 31, 2023, and the projects are expected to be commissioned within 18 months from the date of signing the power purchase agreement (PPA).

The tender document mentions particularly about already commenced projects will not be considered. Projects under construction or projects which are not started, thus, be considered, for instance, the projects are not already regarded under any other central or state schemes or do not have partnered utilities. Expansion of or adding supplementary capacity to already commissioned projects, whatever their capacities, will not be regarded in the group of eligible projects.

Placing of land, setting up, and ownership of the project, along with obtaining linkages and interconnection with the ISTS network for the disbursement of power to CESC, will be in the hands of the developer’s scope. An individual developer can bid for a minimum range of 50 MW up to a maximum range of 150 MW interconnected at the delivery point.
