A review of Bhadla Solar Park in Rajasthan
In order to evacuate the power from the solar power plant, RRVPNL is developing an integrated power evacuation system according to solar power evacuation requirements comprising of one 400 kV sub-station at Bhadla and construction of 3 pooling sub-stations of 132 kV GSS in solar park for evacuation of power with provision of their up gradation to 220 kV at a later date and its interconnection with 400 kV GSS. Power from Bhadla 400 kV sub-station shall be evacuated by double circuit 400 kV line to Mokla 400 kV substation and double circuit 400 kV line from 400 kV GSS Bhadla to 765/400 kV Jodhpur sub-station
The solar park in Bhadla for Phase I encompasses 150 MW of CSP and 100 MW of PV projects. Based on the numbers previously given on available radiation, it may be considered that 5 hours at nominal rate is available for both PV and CSP power plants.
The solar project developer in JNNSM phase-II can consider to install their solar project in the coming solar park being developed by Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Limited (RRECL) at Bhadla, Tehsil Phalodi, District Jodhpur. It is proposed to recommend the required land to the selected Solar Power Producer in Bhadla Solar Park. The plots of appropriate size for MW scale PV / CSP projects is being developed. The power produced from these solar power plants will be fed to 400/220/132/33kV GSS (Bhadla GSS) being developed by RVPN. Therefore connectivity to the developers shall be provided at Bhadla GSS.
Land shall be allotted to the SPP by the District Collector as per the provision of Rajasthan Land Revenue (Allotment of Land for setting up of power plant based on Renewable Energy Sources) Rules, 2007. The application for land allotment shall be forwarded to the District Collector only after receipt of development charges as below.
The SPP shall pay one time development charges @ Rs. 6.0 lac. / Hectare plus taxes as applicable thereof to the Rajasthan Solar park Development Company Ltd. In addition, the SPP shall pay annually O&M charges @ 5% of @ Rs. 6.0 lac./hectare i.e. Rs. 30,000.00 /hectare plus taxes as applicable thereof for maintenance of common infrastructure facilities created by the Rajasthan Solar park Development Company Ltd. RREC will arrange to allot plot(s) for setting up of Solar Power Plant proportionate to their plant capacity as per clause 5.2.1(a) of solar policy to SPP in Bhadla Solar Park, Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The SPP have to deposit Rs 6 Lac/MW towards Development charges for Roads, Common infrastructure development etc. to Rajasthan Solar park Development Company Ltd. (A subsidiary Company of RREC). Grid connectivity charges: All solar power plants getting connected to the grid for supplying power to the Procurer shall pay Grid connectivity charges of Rs. 2.00 lacks per MW to RVPN. RVPN shall provide complete 132kV Line Bay (including civil works) at 400/220 kV sub-station at Bhadla at RVPN cost.. Line Bay includes breakers, CTs, CVT/ PTs, isolators, protection equipment’s, bus bar material and other allied materials as applicable.
Under the JNNSM, at least 3,000 MW of capacity is to be competitively bid out by 2017 and a significant slice of which is expected to be in Rajasthan. Procurement for 75 MW of solar photovoltaic power at Bhadla solar park for Rajasthan distribution utilities was completed in 2013. 200 MW of solar power capacity is to be tendered out annually during 2014–2018 at the Bhadla solar park.
