The testing is expected to be done by September and by April 2012, the company would decide on their introduction.

Delayed Solar-Power Plants Face Fines as Gujarat Sets Precedent

Gujarat state has led India’s nascent solar industry, awarding licenses for 959 megawatts to developers seeking a foothold in a state-subsidized renewable energy market. The first 48.5 megawatts were required start operating by Dec. 31, according to a list obtained by Bloomberg News from Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd., the state-run company that will buy the power.

Companies agreed to penalties that were laid out in their power purchase agreements, Patil said. “They will be charged accordingly,” he said. The penalties for delays in beginning operations are 10,000 rupees ($222) a day per megawatt for the first 60 days and 15,000 rupees thereafter, according to the state power company that contracted to buy the electricity.

Lanco Infratech Ltd., the Hyderabad-based developer that completed its 5-megawatt allotment on Dec. 20, is the only company that met the deadline. Five projects awarded to Azure Power of New Delhi, Zeba Solar, Germany’s Dreisatz GmbH and MI MySolar24 Ltd. weren’t completed.
