Coal India Invites Proposals For 100 MW Solar Plant In Chattisgarh
November 09, 2019
Coal India Limited (CIL), a Government of India enterprise, has issued an Expression of Interest (EoI) inviting proposals from interested solar power developers and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors for setting up of 100 MW solar energy plant in Chattisgarh.
CIL, which produced around 607 million tonnes of various grades of coal in the last financial year i.e 18-19, and is primarily involved in the coal production business. The central government has tasked it 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.
CIL intends to establish a 100 MW solar PV project in SDO (Solar Power Developer and Operator) mode in the state of Chhattisgarh which will cater to the green energy requirement of SECL (South Eastern Coalfields Limited, a subsidiary of CIL).
