Biggest Solar Power Plant Planned in Rann of Kutch Gujarat

Submitted by on Wednesday, 5 August 200945 Comments

Solar Panel in Gujarat Biggest solar power plant in Gujarat, is very ambitious dream for each Guajarati. I just read this news in local news paper and caught an opportunity to share with my readers.

Gujarat government has planned to develop solar farm in Rann of Kutch and allocate 1,500 hectares of land in the desert and a small stretch in Santalpur in Banaskantha district near Gujarat-Pakistan border. The infrastructure for this ambitious “Solar park” project will be developed by GIDC (Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation.

Here is the courtesy from “Times of India”:

However, the shadow that could fall on Gujarat’s solar ambitions is that tapping energy from the Sun has so far proved technically complicated and economically unviable. Also, the scale of just one of the projects – the Clinton Foundation proposal to generate about 5,000 megawatt of power- is way larger than India’s biggest power project of 3,260MW in Vindyachal. The biggest solar power plant planned so far is a 160MW project in Portugal.

Number of companies has queued up for setting up plants due to attractive incentives offered in new Solar Power Policies. The Runn of Kutch is best place for Solar Power Generation as well as component manufacturing, “said a senior official in the chief minister’s office.

    Thank you! You often write very interesting articles. You improved my mood.

  • patriot said:

    Why does indian govt plan such inefficient and huge effort to generate solar power, this will to only consume indian money but also the land resources.What happens next when the demand for power goes even higher, where will they put the solar battery if no land is available. Why cannot isro provide a smarter solution (like beaming solar energy down to earth from a cluster or satellites). I think the current plan is inefficient and temporary. ISRO scientists should help solve the problem of bringing solar power to earth in an efficient manner. Current plan is not going to work for long.

    Solar Power is so cool. it is clean and renewable energy. when the cost of solar panels goes down, i think every home should be owning a mini solar power station.

  • acnerdy said:

    the cost of Solar Cells for Solar Energy utilization has been decreasing over the past years. pretty soon, solar energy would be a more viable alternative than fossil fuels,-

  • vignesh.A said:

    Solar plants should be installed in each house in our country.
    government should make advertisements on subsidy of giving 55% sum on installations of solar power plants in homes. Let us give our future generation a clean life.

  • admin said:

    @vignesh
    i am totally agree with your comment as such India having better opportunities for solar power plant as compare to other countries as India having clean climate through out the year. To generate green revolution, we all have to take initiative. keep working

  • patel kishan said:

    we have think about this project in 2005 so good an intelligent project . can i get the view of the project???????????????

  • admin said:

    @krishna
    This is really impressive as you have think about such project in past. As it is very costly to establish such project, most of us can not take immediate action. Due to wonderful climate and open land in kutchh, there is very good potential for generating solar energy in gujarat and various places in India.

    I do not have more details about this project but you can review this article for more information : http://tinyurl.com/solarplant

    all the best

    hey hats off to the gujrat government to develop such an ambitious project.solar energy is vastly available on earth and one can make the full use of it.i know the complexity of such a project but hey nothing is impossible in this world.lets all pray this dream becomes reality.jay jay garvi gujrat.

  • admin said:

    hey shreyansh,
    i am completely agree with you, but as you know that the government is doing great but few of the politician who always do oppose and i am sure narendra modiji will get success in this project. Hope for the best as “if there is a will there is a way”

  • fallu said:

    it is good but is will not work in india because as u know that indians do not have money & they need cheaper things.

  • RISHI KABRA said:

    THIS IS A GREAT STEP TOWARDS SAVING ENERGY AND INDIA NEEDS IT . NOW ALL THE INDUSTRIES ARE MOVING AHEAD TO CONSUME ELECTRICITY FROM SOLAR . RAJASTHAN IS ALREADY PRODUCING ENERGY FROM WIND MILL AND SUPPLYING ENERGY TO GOVT OF RAJASTHAN ELECTRICITY BOARD . WE WOULD BE HIGHLY INTERESTED TO B A PART OF THIS PROJECT FOR PRODUCING ENERGY . PLEASE SEND US THE DETAIL AT OUR MAIL ID.
    THANKS N REGARDS

    Hi rishi,
    I am publishing general news that i found useful for the people around internet. I will try to get the information from online resources and will send to you. I really appreciate your interest in renewable energy resource. Our country is blessed with maximum sunlight availability and we must take an initiative to generate energy from such natural resources. feel free to contact me incase if you need any help or resources.

  • sandeep sangwan said:

    solar power is clean and important source of energy. Indain goverment must help the private developers to develope solar power in india.

  • Harold Brewster said:

    Solar Energy is one of the best ways to get clean energy . Today the efficieny of solar power is a bit low but with advances in technology, solar cells will become more and more efficient in harnessing the energy of the sun.

  • Evelyn Ahmed said:

    Solar Energy is one of the best sources of clean and green electricity. I think that we should build more efficient solar thermal power plants and solar cells. frequently. ‘

  • srinivasan said:

    yes aim interstate investment for solar power please sent some detail

  • vivek Rajgor said:

    very very good.

  • admin said:

    Thank you vivek,
    We have to work hard to become independent in energy sector. government is doing well but general public should also take initiative for the same.

  • Patel said:

    I would like to get all information which can help me to invest in solar farm. If you have any kind of updates, please provide me. It would be very helpful if you have exact address of these sites. Thank you

  • Vipul Kamdar said:

    I think this solar project very very useful to us. So i think we use it individual at our home. In tarace or wall we can put solar cell and catch energy from sun and use it for all day. And at night use optional power from govt.

  • kavita bhojwani said:

    hey,

    i m interested in setting up a solar plant in kutch as i own 26 acres of land there .pls guide me about the details about the project and its legalities.

  • Khushboo said:

    hello..
    I am a electrical engg., I want to set up a solar power plant in jodhpur(rajasthan). pls guide me abt it. like investment, govt policies, return, profit n etc.

  • Jignesh said:

    Dear Khushboo,
    I really appreciate your initiative to setup solar power plant in Jodhpur but as of now, i do not have more information on project establishment. I may search on local authorities or NGO who are working on solar energies and will definitely get back to you along with contact details.

    meanwhile, what i recommend is..find local government agencies working in renewable energy project same as GEDA (this is working actively in GUJARAT), you can fine such agencies in rajasthan, i am sure they can guide you in setting up such project.

    all the best,

  • Prashant said:

    Hi Mate,
    I have read your last comment I am visiting my village in Kutch this December And vary much interested in opening solar plant. You have mentioned about GEDA in your post. I could not found much information about it online. If you can provide me any contact info for them it would be great. I have enough land near Bhuj destruct to start Solar plant but lacking legal guideline and support that government offers for starting project like these. Thanks for your blog. And waiting for your reply.

    Regards
