Govt to Set Big Solar Plant in Rajasthan

The government will establish the world’s biggest solar power project, having a total production capability of 4,000 MW, in Rajasthan. The ultra mega green solar power scheme, whose proposal has been arguable by the Heavy Industries Ministry, would be found close to Sambhar Lake and about 75 kilometers from the state capital Jaipur.


“Total capacity of this scheme will be 4,000 MW and, therefore, this will be the major solar based power project in the world,” an official release said today.


The project would be extended across 23,000 acres area of Sambhar Salts Ltd, a supplementary of central enterprise Hindustan Salts Ltd.


Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Praful Patel said the first stage of the project having 1,000 MW capacities is expected to be bespoke by the end of 2016, according to the release. Once entirely executed, the project would produce 6,000 million units of electrical energy annually. The first phase would be executed through a joint venture company, whose stakeholders would be Bharat Heavy Electricals, Solar Energy Corporation, Power Grid Corporation, SJVN, SSL and Rajasthan Electronics and Instruments Ltd (REIL). “Based on the experience expanded during execution of the first phase of project, the remaining capability would be implemented through a diversity of models,” the release said. Being the first project of this scale anyplace in the world, this project is anticipated to set a trend for large scale solar power expansion, it added. India, which is a power shortage nation, is working on ways to augment contribution from renewable, especially solar, to its total power mix. The determined Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission aspires to have about 20,000 MW of grid-connected solar power by 2022.
