Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company (MSEDCL) has retendered 1GW of solar capacity.

In its tender notice, the Discom said the tender was approved by the Government of Maharashtra in order to meet its Renewable Purchase Obligation (RPO).

The deadline for bid submissions is 27 April 2018.

The original tender was released on 21 December 2018, but the Discom cancelled it on Monday due to receiving poor response.

Meanwhile, MSEDCL has also invited expressions of interest (EOIs) for the setting up of 1GW of floating solar at the Ujani Dam, Solapur District, Maharashtra. At the time of writing, PV Tech was unable to access further detail on this issuance on the Discom's website.

Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) recently consulted the industry on 10GW of floating solar and there have been several floating PV announcements since then.
