Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has issued a request for proposal (RfP) for implementing grid-connected rooftop solar projects at its buildings in different parts of Maharashtra under the renewable energy service company (RESCO) model.

The RESCO model is a system where the developer owns the solar project, and the consumer only has to pay for the energy generated.

BSNL has invited non-financial bids to implement the projects. The projects are to be implemented at 55 BSNL buildings in the state with a cumulative available rooftop area of 43,338 square meters (tentative). However, BSNL has not specified the total capacity of the projects.

The last date for submission of bids is July 17, 2020.

The successful bidders are expected to conduct a site survey, design, and propose the highest possible capacity of projects at various sites.
