Developers should work for Land, Connectivity and Long Term Open Access of the project. The Projects can be located anywhere in India and for better grid balancing, different components of RTC power i.e. solar, wind, small hydro, and thermal can be connected with the CTU network at multiple injection points, but within the same RLDC region.
