Solar power tariff drops to all-time low of Rs 2.62 per unit

The tariff has dropped to Rs 2.62 per unit lower than NTPC's coal-based power tariff of Rs 3.20 per unit.

Recently, a tender for 250 MW of solar power generation capacity in Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh got a record-low bid of INR 3,150 per MWh from Solairedirect, a unit of French utility Engie (EPA:ENGI).

Auctions were carried out for 250 mw of solar power in Bhadla Phase-IV Solar Park, where the base price for the auction was set at Rs3.01 a unit by SECI.

SBG Cleantech is the joint venture of Japan's Softbank, Taiwan's Foxcomm, and Bharti Airtel.

The Adani Renewable Energy Park - a joint venture between the Adani Group and the Rajasthan government owned Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Ltd (RRECL) - is located at Bhadla, a site that enjoys the highest solar radiation in the country. Ltd bought the entire 1.1 gigawatt (GW) renewable energy portfolio of Welspun Energy Ltd for $1.4 billion previous year.

Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB) has issued seven Letter of Support (LOS) and 17 Letter of Intent (LOI) for various solar projects which will generate a total 556.52 MW electricity.

The tumbling price of solar energy also increases the likelihood that India will meet - and by its own predictions, exceed - the renewable energy targets it set at the Paris climate accords in December 2015.

The auction for this 500MW capacity being developed by Saurya Urja Co. of Rajasthan Ltd on 11 May is now eagerly awaited, with experts being of the opinion that the tariffs may fall further.

Ltd and Safe Solar Power Pvt Ltd (10 MW each), Access Solar Pvt Ltd (11.52 MW), Blue Star Hydel Pvt Ltd (1 MW), Harappa Solar Pvt Ltd (18 MW) and AJ Power Pvt Ltd (12 MW).
