The Indian State of Rajasthan could have its 925 MW Nokh Solar Park in the Jaisalmer district operational by the end of the financial year 2021-22. The Nokh solar park will be the State’s second-largest after the 2250 MW Bhadla Solar Park in the Jodhpur district.
The project is expected to complete by March 31, 2022 and will attract investment worth INR 3300 crore, Hindi news website Patrika quoted Subodh Agarwal, chairman and managing director, Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation Ltd (RRECL).
The Nokh solar park will be spread over 1850 hectares land and have solar projects developed by the state-owned power producer NTPC.
Rajasthan’s installed renewable energy capacity reached 9.6 GW at the end of FY 2019-20. This included 5.2 GW of solar. Also, during FY2019-20, it added more solar power capacity (1.7 GW) than any other Indian state—ahead of Karnataka (1.4 GW), the state with the highest installed solar capacity, and Tamil Nadu (1.3 GW), according to an Ieefa report.
High solar radiation and wind speeds and an abundance of barren land make Rajasthan suitable for utility-scale solar parks.
