According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh are emerging as the top destinations for large, utility scale solar projects in India. Based on the figures for Government of India’s Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects scheme, Gujarat has bagged the highest number of approved projects. Under the scheme, out of 26.5 GW of large-scale solar farms that have been approved, only 3.3 GW has been delivered. With 23 GW of solar capacity at present, the upcoming projects will be sufficient enough to double the total solar power generation capacity in the country.
