Goa Energy Development Agency (GEDA) has re-floated bids for 600kW solar rooftop power plants at district hospitals in north and south Goa. The bidder requested that the tender document be modified.
The pre-bid meeting was attended by companies interested in bidding. They proposed to submit a single performance bank guarantee equal to 10% of the project costs for a five year period. There were also some changes in other clauses.
The state government was seeking bids to design, supply and install grid-connected solar rooftop power plant with an aggregate capacity 1,200kW. Operation and maintenance for five years at both hospitals are also required.
Due to the generation of 600 kW solar energy the North district hospital will see a reduction of its power bill upto 50% and 30% approx of south district hospital.
The power plants will have web-based remote monitoring instruments.
A senior officer stated that the government spends crores of rupees to buy renewable energy certificates from other states. However, generating solar power in the state can help save this amount.
