In peak summer, during one of the worst droughts to hit the region in 30 years, it seemed devoid of all life — even doughty bush plants have lost most leaves. Cyclone Vayu , which hit the Gujarat coast in June this year, did little to revive the district of Patan. This perhaps explains why the official website of the Gujarat Power Corporation Limited describes the 5, acres across which the Charanka solar park is spread as unused land. The rest, as per the map, is government land. The villagers were livid at these labels. The solar park project launched in December , has been functional since April

Solar power in Gujarat is a fast developing industry given that the large state is mostly arid. Gujarat was one of the first states to develop solar generation capacity in India. As of January , Gujarat has an installed capacity of 7, MW of renewable energy, that meets only 28 per cent of the total capacity.
The Government of Gujarat plans to take it up to 22, MW by , making up 53 per cent. The state has set an ambitious target of adding 15,MW to 20,MW total energy generation over the next few years. The state government has now chalked out an action plan to increase the share of renewable energy in the total energy generation from 10 per cent to 17 per cent by In January , the government announced that solar power generation will be increased by 3,MW annually.
In addition to the existing solar power policy, the state has also come out with a solar-wind hybrid policy, looking to establish four-five such parks with at least MW capacity. Source: GEDA . Gujarat solar park 1 , also called Charanka Solar Park, is being built on a 2,hectare 4,acre plot of land near Charanka village in Patan district , northern Gujarat.
So far, the park has witnessed investments of Rs 5, crore and generated 3, million units till date. Installed generation capacity is at about MW at present, having been commissioned by 31 developers in the Solar Park.

Gujarat solar park 1
The Delingha Solar Park is located just north of Haixi, again in Qinghai Province, and houses over 40 projects with a combined capacity of over 1, MW. Regional energy agencies in states such as Gujarat, Qinghai and Gansu identified suitable locations where several solar power plants could be sited together. The coordinators provided for high-capacity grid connections and often also procured or provided the land. It has since been expanded to over MW of overall capacity. The largest solar parks now house over 50 individual solar power plants. The solar park concept has subsequently been adopted elsewhere in Asia and the Middle East.

An overview of the world’s largest solar parks
The plant is part of the country's first multi-developer, multi-technology solar park, bringing clean energy to the region. Spread across 5, acres, the solar park includes MW of solar and wind energy generation capacity. Find out how we are helping power providers and private industry in Asia integrate renewable energy as developing nations strive for full electrification. This provided assurance that applicable Indian regulations and codes, as well as engineering and construction practices, were accounted for. The new plant was commissioned in Office Locator.
