The DOE said this is the first round of the OCSP round to offer wind projects following the completion of resource assessment for wind energy.

Evaluation of all bids is expected to be completed by 12 October and the awarding of contracts will be on 24 November.

The Review and Evaluation Committee is currently reviewing the motion for reconsideration from four bidders, two of which were for hydropower and two for wind projects.

PDAs are locations with a potential for renewable sources that could be developed for the energy sector.
