A one gigawat ultra mega solar park, which is tipped to be the world’s largest single-location solar park, is nearing completion in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh.
While 900 MW of the 1,000 MW has already been commissioned at the Kurnool Ultra Solar Park, the remaining is to be fully operational next month.
It has already become the largest such park outpacing 648 MWsolar park developed by Adani in Tamil Nadu and Topaz Solar Park of 550 MW in California.
Ajay Jain, Principal Secretary (Energy), said this is a major achievement. The park has been developed under the solar parks scheme of MNRE and set up by Andhra Pradesh Solar Power Corporation, a joint venture company wherein 50 per cent equity is held by SECI, 41 per cent by AP Genco and 9 per cent by Nredcap.
