Recently, the Manipur Renewable Energy Development Agency (MANIREDA), an autonomous agency under the state’s power department, invited bids to develop 100 MW of grid-connected solar energy projects at Jiribam in Manipur. The ceiling tariff for the tender has been fixed as ₹3 (~$0.040)/kWh.
Previously, Mercom reported that the solar power Corporation of India (SECI) had said that it might issue a young for 1,000 MW of solar PV capacity to be developed in Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, Tripura, Nagaland, and Assam. consistent with SECI, the solar PV projects would be developed under Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) Phase-II Batch-IV.
Northeastern states are behind in developing solar projects due to their topographical challenges. Though the govt has approved solar parks in Arunachal Pradesh (Lohit), Assam (Amguri), Meghalaya, Mizoram, and Nagaland, the progress has been slow.
