The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has issued a request for proposal (RfP) for 90 small-scale solar projects of 1MW capacity each in Sri Lanka under the second stage of the Suryabala Sangramaya Programme – Phase II.

Approval to go ahead with the RfP issuance was first given back in October last year.

Plants will be developed on a Build Own and Operate (BOO) basis and will supply power to the National Grid. PPAs will be signed with CEB for a period of 20 years.

Deadline for submission of proposals is 23 March 2018.
