A few months ago, SJVN invited expressions of interest to shortlist suitable land to develop 500 MW solar projects in Rajasthan. SJVN requires 3,000 acres of land to develop an ultra mega renewable energy power project. To this end, it invited proposals from landowners, farmers, cooperatives and land collectors to sell the land on a lump-sum or long-term lease of 28 years.

Recently, SJVN invited tenders for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a 100 MW solar project at Raghanessa Solar Park (Phase X), Gujarat.

Earlier, it had issued a notice inviting expression of interest from interested parties to offer its solar and hydroelectric projects for acquisition by SJVN. To increase its geomorphic reach, SJVN plans to accumulate hydroelectric and solar energy projects in Indian states under various phases of operations and maintenance, construction and survey and investigation.
