The project comprises a solar power project with three main sites in Nakhonpathom and Suphanburi provinces with total contracted capacity of 57 MW using photovoltaic (PV) technology. The project will be developed and implemented under six standard PPAs (each for 9.5 MW of contract capacity) with PEA. The PPAs are automatically renewable every 5 years and, in addition to the wholesale tariff, include an adder of B8.0 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) applicable for 10 years from the date of commercial operation. The project is a public private partnership under the VSPP program, which buys renewable energy from power plants for up to 10 MW per PPA to provide clean electricity to the grid. The project will be developed under two EPC arrangements, with the commercial operations planned for the fourth quarter of 2013. Read More
