Pavagada Solar Park, KarnatakaPavagada solar park, also known as Shakti Sthala, is a 2GW solar complex being developed in Pavagada, Tumkur district, approximately 180km from Bengaluru, Karnataka, India. It is expected to become the world’s biggest solar farm when completed.
The project is being developed by Karnataka Solar Power Development Corporation Limited (KSPDCL), a joint venture between Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Limited (KREDL), with an estimated investment of Rs16.5bn ($2.5bn).
Development is part of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) scheme, which aims to build solar parks and ultra-mega solar power projects to achieve the 100GW solar power target by 2020.
The project is also part of Karnataka’s Solar Policy 2014-2021, which aims to shift the dependency from conventional power resources to eco-friendly energy resources.
Solar park construction started in October 2016 and the 600MW first phase was commissioned in January 2018. The entire solar park is expected to be completed by the end of 2018, while commissioning will be completed by 2019.
The project will displace approximately 578,631t of carbon dioxide emissions a year.
Fixed-tilted photovoltaic solar panels with a tilt angle of 15° due south and flat panels will be installed at the solar park. A total of 166,668 units of Canadian Solar’s CS6X-300P solar panels and 499,995 units of First Solar’s FS-3100 solar photovoltaic modules will be used for each 50MW block.
The CS6X-300P models have 72 poly-crystalline cells measuring 156mm x 156mm. The module efficiency is up to 15.63% with an optimum operating voltage of 36.1V. The module frame material is of anodised aluminium alloy and the front cover is of 3.2mm tempered glass.
