Govt working to double generation target from solar parks

Government is working on doubling the power generation target from solar energy parks to 40,000 MW in the backdrop of slow offtake of rooftop solar and problems being faced by some project developers.

The Ministry of New & Renewable Energy is keen to set up solar park projects with a cumulative capacity of 20,000 MW, in addition to the already launched such programme of 20,000 MW in 2014

There has been slow progress of rooftop solar projects as it is mainly being implemented by institutions like government offices, schools and colleges. The scheme for 'Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects' had been rolled out by the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy on December 12, 2014.

The solar parks will provide suitable developed land with all clearances, transmission system, water access, road connectivity, communication network, etc. This scheme will facilitate and speed up installation of grid connected solar power projects for electricity generation on a large scale.
