The Government of India has taken significant strides towards promoting renewable energy through its “Development of Solar Park and Ultra Mega Power Projects” scheme. This initiative aims to establish 50 Solar Parks with a combined capacity of 37,990 MW across 12 states in the country.
As of now, considerable progress has been made, with 11 Solar Parks, having a total capacity of 8,521 MW, successfully completed, and 7 Solar Parks with a combined capacity of 3,985 MW partially completed. Notably, these parks have led to the development of solar projects with a remarkable aggregate capacity of 10,237 MW, showcasing the nation’s dedication to green and sustainable energy solutions.
Karnataka Leads the Way:
Among all the states, Karnataka has emerged as a frontrunner in embracing solar power. The state has been sanctioned a substantial capacity of 2,500 MW under the Solar Park Scheme. Impressively, Karnataka has already installed 2,000 MW of this sanctioned capacity, reflecting its strong commitment to adopting clean and sustainable energy sources.
Highest Realization Rate:
Karnataka’s success story continues as it boasts the highest realization rate among all 12 states benefiting from the scheme. With an impressive realization rate of 80%, Karnataka’s efficient implementation stands as an example for others to follow in harnessing solar power effectively.
The Solar Park Scheme remains active with an ongoing timeline up to 31st March 2026. As the Government continues its support, India’s solar power infrastructure is set to grow further, ushering in a cleaner and greener future for the nation. By leveraging the potential of solar energy, India aims to reduce its carbon footprint and promote sustainable development.
In conclusion, India’s Solar Park Scheme has made remarkable progress in driving the adoption of renewable energy across the country. The completion of 11 Solar Parks and partial completion of 7 others signifies the Government’s commitment to promoting a greener and more sustainable energy landscape.
Karnataka’s exceptional performance in realizing its sanctioned capacity highlights its leadership in embracing solar power. With the scheme set to continue for several years, India is on course to achieving its renewable energy goals and securing a cleaner and more sustainable future for generations to come.
