World's largest so­lar park func­tional in Kurnool

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT -

Kurnool so­lar park in Andhra Pradesh was re­cently com­mis­sioned and fully grid-syn­chro­nised af­ter the com­mis­sion­ing and hook­ing to the grid of the last 20 MW, de­vel­oped by the Adani Group. The group was awarded a 50-MW por­tion of the en­tire ca­pac­ity, 30 MW of which was com­mis­sioned by its sub­sidiary Pray­atna De­vel­op­ers at the end of June. Kurnool will re­main the world's largest so­lar park for a long time as most GW-scale projects glob­ally are un­der de­vel­op­ment. Pre­vi­ously, the 648MW so­lar park at Ka­muthi in Tamil Nadu was In­dia's largest. In­dia in­tends to gen­er­ate 175 GW of re­new­able en­ergy till 2022. Of this, a 100 GW would be from so­lar power. Till May 2017, the coun­try had achieved a tar­get of nearly 12.28 GW of so­lar en­ergy.„
