Indian utility National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) is inviting bids from developers for 250 MW PV project under the so-called domestic content requirement (DCR). NTPC has not mentioned where this capacity will be located.
For the NTPC 250 MW tender, both local and international developers can submit bids for the 250 MW grid connected solar PV power plant tender. Bidding documents are available till August 18, 2017. Last date to submit bids is August 30, 2017. Further tender details are available on NTPC’s website.
The DCR category had the US and India at loggerheads for quite sometime. The World Trade Organization (WTO) finally decided in favor of the US, leading India to scrap the policy altogether. In fact, Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) had to cancel 150 MW bid with local content requirement MW capacity for Bhadla Solar Park in March 2017 (see India Terminates 150 MW Local Content PV Tender). In June 2017, delegations from both countries agreed to end solar DCR by December 14, 2017 in India.
