Solar power in India

In regards to solar power generation across its units, India presently ranks 3rd in Asia and 4th in the world, with solar resources contributing to around 38 percent of its overall sustainable energy capacity. By March 31, 2021, India's solar capacity factor was 40.09 gigawatt. Initially, the government of India set a 20-gigawatt capacity target for 2022, which was met four years before the expected time. In 2015, the goal was upped to 100-gigawatt capacity by 2022 (including 40 gigawatts from PVs installed on rooftops), by investing approximately a hundred billion dollars.

India has developed roughly 42 solar parks to provide space to solar plant developers. According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, another 36.03 GW of solar installations are in different phases of implementation, while 23.87 GW is in the tendering stage. In order to minimize its reliance on fossil fuels, India has great expectations from the technology to provide a major amount of its 450 GW renewable energy target by 2030.

Bhadla Solar Park 

The world's largest solar power plant, the Bhadla Solar Park, is located in Bhadla village in Rajasthan's Jodhpur region. It is a fully functioning power plant, which spans 14,000 acres and has a capacity of 2,250MW. Rajasthan Solar Park Development Company Limited,  Adani Renewable Energy Park Rajasthan, and Saurya Urja Company were among the companies that worked on the massive solar power project. Rajasthan's current solar energy use accounts for 10 percent of the country's total electricity demand.

Pavagada Solar Park

It is a solar park in Pavagada taluk, Tumkur district, Karnataka, that covers 13,000 acres of land. The park, which became operational in 2019, has an installed capacity of 2,050 megawatts. It was the world's third-largest photovoltaic solar park as of April 2021. The entire cost of the project was ₹14,800 crores (2.1 billion USD).

Shakti Sthala solar power project – 2,050MW

The Shakti Sthala solar power facility in Karnataka's Tumakuru district is now India's second-biggest solar power plant, having previously been the world's largest of its kind. The 2,050-MW project was built with assistance from the National Thermal Power Corporation  (NTPC) by the Karnataka Solar Park Development Corporation Limited (KSPDCL). It covers an area of over 13,000 acres. The $2.1 billion projects have allegedly relieved 2,300 farmers who had previously been harmed by the region's semi-arid climate and lack of rainfall.
