Solar power tariffs in India appear to be in a free fall, in recently concluded Rewa and Bhadla Solar Park bids, the tariffs touched INR 2.62/unit which is approximately 18% lower than average price of INR 3.20/unit charged by NTPC for electricity generated by its coal fired plants. Having said that, this is the clear demonstration of aggressive bidding as IRR (Internal Rate of Return) for projects having tariff INR 4.3/unit comes out to be 14.20% which is much lower than benchmark IRR of 18%. Several risk factor such as fluctuations in foreign currency, capacity utilisation factor, operations and maintenance cost escalation etc. are not being taken into consideration while bidding and if the base assumptions go wrong then having a financial feasible project will be a challenge. Does, this risk opens up business opportunity for Open Access transactions in India?
