The Indian government has invited tenders for 2,000MW of wind power projects connected to the inter-state transmission system. The Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) would sign 25-year power purchase agreements (PPAs) with the winning bidders and sell the power to electricity distribution utilities.

The ceiling tariff has been set at Rs 2.93 per unit. A company can bid for a minimum capacity of 50MW and a maximum capacity of 300MW. Acquiring land, permissions and other infrastructure to connect the upcoming wind projects to the electricity grid would be the responsibility of the developer.
