Gujarat Solar Park


Gujarat Power Corporation Limited (GPCL) is the Nodal Agency for the development of "Solar Park" in Gujarat.

Govt of Gujarat is admired for taking bold and proactive initiative in the Projects of Renewable energy to harness Clean and Green Energy. GPCL commissioned, Asia’s largest "Gujarat Solar Park" to mitigate impact of Climate Change and to protect environment for our future generation, making Solar Sector vibrant and viable not only in our Nation but also across the Globe

590 MW capacity of "Solar Park" is located at village Charanka, District Patan in Gujarat spread across 5,384 acres of unused land. The integrated "Solar Park" has state of art infrastructure with provision to harness rain water besides power evacuation at the door steps. Installed capacity of 224MW Solar Project have been commissioned by 20 developers. The capacity will be enhanced by another 50MW by the end of this year, thus putting the installed capacity as 274MW., accounting to 25% of total Solar generation developed India. Solar Park has also capacity to generate 100 MW of Wind Power and already two Wind Mills, each of 2.1 MW has been commissioned making the Park, biggest solar-wind hybrid Park in the world. "Solar Park” also accounts for 3,42,400 tons Carbon Emission Reductions (CERs) which is one of the largest CERs contributing Project in the Renewable Energy Sector.

Development cost of "Solar Park" was Rs. 4500 Crores, which includes Rs. 550 Crores for infrastructure and land acquisition and Rs. 3,996 crores for Solar Power Plant (Developers investment), besides creating an Employment for more than 1,000 people on permanent basis. Project was launched on 30.12.2010 and commissioned on 31.12.2011 and formally dedicated to the Nation by Hon'ble Chief Minister on 19.04.2012.

"Gujarat Solar Park" has been one of the most innovative projects in the Solar Energy Sector having large concentration/cluster of Solar Power generating units at single location, thereby reducing cost substantially (40%), and bringing down lower Solar Tariff to pave way for large scale development of Solar Power Projects.
