Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) will procure 750 megawatt (mw) of solar energy from the Rajasthan based Bhadla Solar Park.
This solar energy would be wheeled in from 4 private power developers having units in the Park, which is currently India’s largest solar facility spread across 4,500 hectares with planned installed capacity of 2,255 mw.
The bidding for these transactions was conducted by Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and later power purchase agreements (PPA) were signed against solar tariffs ranging from Rs 2.47 per unit to Rs 2.49 per unit.
The Yogi Adityanath government is targetting total renewable energy capacity of 10,700 mw in the coming years to gradually move towards green energy.
