Gujarat tops in approved capacity under government’s solar park scheme


The government of India has sanctioned a total of 14,375 MW solar capacity to Gujarat under its scheme for “Development of Solar Parks and Ultra-Mega Solar Power Projects.”

With this, Gujarat alone accounts for 38% of 37,771 MW capacity approved for different States. Project-wise sanctioned PV capacity in Gujarat is as follows: Dholera Solar Park (Phase-I) 1,000 MW, Dholera Solar Park (Phase-II) 4,000 MW, GIPCL RE Park (600 MW), GSECL RE Park (3,325 MW), NTPC RE Park (4,750 MW), and Radhnesada Solar Park (700 MW)

The “Development of Solar Parks and Ultra-Mega Solar Power Projects” Scheme, rolled out in December 2014, aims to facilitate solar developers in setting up projects by providing a plug-and-play facility through these parks. The Scheme targets to set up 40 GW of solar park capacity.

Gujarat is followed by Madhya Pradesh (6,000 MW), Rajasthan (4,276 MW), Andhra Pradesh (4,000 MW) and Uttar Pradesh (3,805 MW) in the approved solar park capacity.

The overall approved solar park capacity for different States also includes floating solar capacities of 600 MW in Madhya Pradesh, 150 MW in Jharkhand, 100 MW in Odisha, and 50 MW in Kerala.

The timeline for completion of solar parks in all States under the scheme for “Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects” is March, 2024.
