Kerala State’s Small Hydro Promotion Cell (SHPC) invites applications for pre-qualification from independent power producers or potential power consumers to develop 12 small hydropower projects in Kerala. Responses are due June 15.
Detailed project reports are available for all sites. SHPC plans to award projects to independent power producers based on the lowest quoted levelized tariff for sale of power to Kerala State Electricity Board. Projects would be awarded to power consumers for “captive” power projects based on quoted up-front premiums.
