Solar Park and ultra-mega solar power projects are launched by the ministry of new and renewable energy. The government of India Solar power projects can be set up anywhere in the country, however the scattering of solar power projects leads to higher project cost per MW and higher transmission losses. Individual projects of smaller capacity incur significant expenses in site development, drawing separate transmission lines to nearest substation, procuring water and in creation of 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. To overcome these challenges, the scheme for “Development of Solar Parks and Ultra-Mega Solar Power Projects” was rolled out in December 2014 with an objective to facilitate the solar project developers to set up projects in a plug and play model. The duration period for this scheme is up to 2022-23.
Objective of the Scheme
The scheme envisages supporting the States/UTs in setting up solar parks at various locations in the country with a view to creating required infrastructure for setting up of solar power projects. The solar parks provide suitable developed land with all clearances, transmission system, water access, road connectivity, communication network, etc. The scheme facilitates and speeds up installation of grid-connected solar power projects for electricity generation on a large scale.
