THDC, Rajasthan government sign agreement for 10GW of solar parks


The work on 10 GW of new solar parks in Rajasthan is set to begin soon. These project-ready sites in Rajasthan will be constructed by State-run Tehri Hydro Development Corporation Limited (THDCIL) in a joint venture with Rajasthan Renewable Energy Limited (RRECL)–the nodal agency for promoting and developing non-conventional energy sources in Rajasthan.

The two parties recently signed an agreement to develop five solar parks of 2GW capacity each in the State. 

The solar parks will be completed in phases by 2027. These project-ready sites will let solar developers set up large-scale projects in a plug-and-play mode. 

Individual projects of smaller capacity incur significant expenses in site development, drawing separate transmission lines to nearest substation, procuring water, and creating other necessary infrastructure. It also takes a long time for project developers to acquire land, get change-of-land use and various permissions, etc, which delays the project. The proposed solar parks will overcome these challenges.
