The Gujarat government has recently begun the process of allotment of about 50,000 hectares of land to various power producing companies for developing a mix of wind and solar projects
Ahmedabad: Billed as the world’s largest renewable power generation project at a single location, the proposed hybrid park in Kutch is ready to take off.
The park, with a total proposed capacity of about 28,000MW, will house the 10,000MW project of Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL), among others. AGEL aims to invest close to Rs 30,000 crore in the upcoming park where it has been allotted 20,000 hectares of land, said sources. Of the 10,000MW capacity, 8,000MW is likely to be of solar while the remaining will be of wind, said sources.
“Over the next five years, our investments will include the world’s largest solar hybrid park in Khavda. The anticipated investment in this park is Rs 30,000 crore,” Gautam Adani, the chairman of Adani Group, had said while speaking at the inaugural session of the Vibrant Gujarat Summit in 2019.
The Gujarat government has recently begun the process of allotment of about 50,000 hectares of land to various power producing companies for developing a mix of wind and solar projects. These include AGEL, Sarjan Realities, Gujarat Industries Power Company Ltd (GIPCL), Gujarat State Electricity Corporation Ltd (GSECL), and National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC). The park is expected to be completed in five years. To ensure this, developers who had letters of intent or had firm orders or had signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) were given preference.
