Coal India Limited has issued an Expression of Interest inviting proposals from interested solar power developers and Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractors for setting up of 100 MW solar energy plant in Chhattisgarh. CIL intends to establish a 100 MW solar PV project in Solar Power Developer and Operator mode in the state of Chhattisgarh which will cater to the green energy requirement of South Eastern Coalfields Limited, a subsidiary of CIL. The current annual power consumption of SECL in Chhattisgarh is 850 million units. The proposed solar project will be established in Capex Mode. The selected developers will also be required for providing comprehensive operation and maintenance services for the plant for a period of 25 years. The last date for submission of proposals has been set for November 25, 2019.

The central government has tasked CIL to become a net-zero energy company by establishing approximately 3000 MW of solar power projects. And the latest EoI has been issued with the objective of partially fulfilling that obligation and the firm’s clear intent to contribute cleaner and greener fuel to the nation.
