The last date of issuance of the tender document is December 11 and the tender will be opened on December 19.
Earlier this year, in June, the state cabinet decided to implement the rural village electrification scheme for households to help 90 houses in Sanguem, Quepem, Sattari and Canacona get electricity through renewable energy.
The scheme aims at bringing electricity, through renewable sources, to un-electrified remote villages, hamlets and wards where grid connectivity is either not feasible or not cost-effective.
“Keeping in view the role of electricity in human and socio-economic development, this scheme is formulated to ensure last mile connectivity and electricity connections to all remaining un-electrified households in the state. This scheme is therefore formulated in order to fulfill the government’s target of 100 percent electrification in the state,” a senior officer said.
Under the scheme, 100% financial assistance will be provided to households, with an upper limit of Rs 90,000 per household, for a 500 Wp solar system. This amount will include cost of transportation and installation as well as annual maintenance contract (AMC) for five years.
