Since the design and engineering are in the consultant’s scope and the specific construction work will be executed based on engineering performed by the consultant, it will be the responsibility of the consultant to carry out such design and engineering with maximum accuracy as per standard codes.
In May this year, West Bengal Renewable Energy Development Agency invited bids to install 10 MW of rooftop solar systems in the state.
