APTRANSCO receives responses for 350 MW

After the issuance of a letter inviting bidders to submit responses for a tariff of Rs.6.49/unit last month, APTRANSCO received responses for 350 MW as per the article on Business Line this Thursday.

Developers convey willingness to set up 690 MW solar – Tamil Nadu Solar Bidding

According to an article published in The Hindu on 1st June, Tamil Nadu Generation Corporation (Tangedco) as a response to its solar bidding has received letters of commitment from developers for a total capacity of 690 MW.

By the time the deadline for submission of proposals ended (on Friday, 31st May at 5 p.m) the number of developers who were issued LOI went up to 53.
