The Chief Minister said that the company had offered Rs 2.75 per unit for 200 units in Hoshiarpur. For the first time, the Swiss Challenge method for counter bidding has been implemented. The company had earlier bid Rs 2.59 per unit, but PSPCL cut it by 6 paise.
He said that by saving one penny on a 1000 MW solar power plant, an amount of 64 crore 60 lakh rupees is made in 25 years. Whereas if the state government reduces six paise, then in 25 years there will be a saving of Rs 387 crore.
