(pic) Pavagada Solar Park to become biggest solar park in the world soon.

Pavagada Solar Park is a solar park spread over a total area of 13,000 acres (53 km2) in Pavagada taluk, Tumur district, Karnataka.

600 MW of power was commissioned by 31 January 2018 and a further 1,400 MW are planned.The total investment required to build 2,000 MW of capacity was estimated at ₹14,800 crore (US$2.2 billion). 

By the end of 2018, the parks planned had a total capacity of 2,000 MW. When all projects complete, Pavagad Solar Park will be the world’s biggest solar farm.

The park, known as Shakti Sthala is located around 180 km from Bengaluru in the Pavagada region of the tumkur district.

It is spread over 13,000 acres of land that has been taken from 2,300 farmers on a 25-year lease. The total capacity of this solar park is said to be 2,000 megawatts.

MANY FARMERS SOLD THEIR PRIVATE HOLDINGS (lands) CHEAPLY to GOVERNMENT OF KARNATAKA, WHEN THEY WERE UNABLE TO GROW GREEN CROPS IN ARID ZONES IN THIS REGION.

DESPITE ALL THESE SOLAR CAPACITY BOOST, CORRUPTION AND POLITICS IN KARNATAKA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR POWER SHORTAGE IN KARNATAKA.

Is the land too arid to support crop of any value? The area adjacent to the park appears to be quite green.
