Listen to this article

Haryana’s Supply and Disposals Department has invited bids to install and commission 30 MW of grid-connected rooftop solar power systems on government buildings in the state.

The last date to submit the bids online is December 19, 2022. Bids will be opened on the same day.

The participants in the bidding process are required to pay ₹200,000 (~$2,445) as an earnest money deposit (EMD).

However, Haryana-based micro and small enterprises (MSEs), along with central or Haryana public sector enterprises, are exempted from depositing any EMD.


Firms from other states must pay 5% of the contract value as a performance security deposit. Haryana-based MSEs and Haryana-based firms will only pay a concessional rate of 0.2% as the performance security deposit.

Within 30 days from the date of allotment of the project, the successful bidder must furnish ₹100,000 (~$1,223)/MW of plant capacity as a performance bank guarantee.

Bidders can bid for different capacities as mentioned below:

  • Under Category I, the total capacity is 5 MW, and bidders can bid in the range of 50-100 kW
  • Under Category II, the total capacity is 25 MW, and bidders can bid in the range of 101-500 kW

The project must be completed within three months of signing the power purchase agreement (PPA).

Further, bidders must be either manufacturers or system integrators. They can submit bids for a minimum of 3 MW.

Additionally, in the last three years, bidders must have executed the supply, installation, and commissioning of grid-connected rooftop solar power systems equivalent to 40% of the capacity quotes for the bid.

Bidders should have a minimum average annual turnover of ₹20 million (~$244,600)/MW in the last three years. Their net worth should be positive in the previous three financial years.

The tariff discovered will remain valid for one year from the issuance of the rate contract.

The successful bidder will enter into a PPA with the government building owner to supply solar power for at least 25 years.

The levelized tariff for 25 years will remain firm and be binding on the successful bidder.

Bidders should ensure annual power generation of a minimum of 1300 kWh/kW capacity in the first year with permissible degradation per the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy guidelines in subsequent years.

Successful bidders are required to use modules listed in the Approved List of Models and Manufacturers (ALMM) for the projects.

The predicted electrical degradation of power generated should not exceed 20% of the minimum rated power over 25 years and not more than 10% after ten years of the full-rated original output.

In March this year, Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam had invited bids to empanel agencies for the design, supply, installation, testing, and commissioning of grid-connected rooftop solar systems of 1 kW to 500 kW capacity.
