This is the lowest Tariff for solar project discovered till time in India in any of reverse bidding undertaken by state/central agency and this has increased the spotlight on the current NTPC Tender for Projects in Solar Park in AP and Rajasthan . Even the Telangana Solar Tender result would be out soon and it is supposed to be following the same trend or probably will see more aggressive tariff being offered

With the kind of Investment plan proposed by Major industrial Giants  of India and MNC’s , Grid Parity doesn’t look to be far for becoming reality and It’s a good sign for Indian Market .

Detailed Analysis of the Bid result and its implication would be followed in next post ..
