January 11 (Renewables Now) - The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) has put off plans for a 2,000-MW tender for solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity at various parts of the country.
In a notice on its website, it said that the publication of a Request for Proposal (RfP) for the auction has been delayed until further notice, without elaborating further. The RfS for companies wanting to build eight 250-MW grid-connected solar parks, was due to be launched on January 8.
SECI will announce “shortly” the revised dates for uploading documents for the RfS on its website, it said. Last week, it initiated tenders for 1,225 MW of grid-connected solar capacity in the states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.
