The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to develop solar rooftop projects on government and semi-government buildings and offices in the state as part of its new renewable energy initiative.
The department of New and Renewable Energy Development Agency (NEDA), the nodal body, has already invited online bids from prospective bidders for designing, manufacturing, supply, erecting, testing, and commissioning of 25-2,000 kw grid-connected solar PV projects on government buildings and offices.
The selected contractors will also be responsible for maintaining and operating the rooftop solar projects for 25 years.
According to the government spokesman, 'NEDA has also invited a pre-bid conference on October 10 to take note of suggestions that the prospective bidders may have to make.'
The rooftop systems will be implemented as per the Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Authority (UPERC) RSPV Regulations, 2019, and its amendments.
