Transmission Works under Green Energy Corridor – II

GoI has an ambitious plan to establish total 1,00,000 MW Solar and 60,000 MW Wind generation capacity by 2022.  Out of above, Solar capacity targets includes

  • 20GW through 34nos. solar power parks in 21 States
  • 40GW through Roof Top Solar PV
  • 40GW through distributed solar generation.

To evolve plan for Grid integration of solar power parks in Twenty-one (21) states, comprehensive transmission plan was evolved for evacuation of about 20,000 MW capacity envisaged through Intra state & Interstate system. MoP vide letter no.11/64/2014-PG dated 8-01-2015 has assigned works related Transmission schemes for the solar parks viz. Ananthapur (1500 MW), Pavagada (2000 MW), Rewa (750 MW), Bhadla-III (500 MW), Bhadla-IV (250 MW), Essel (750 MW), Banaskantha (700MW) & Fatehgarh (1000 MW) to be implemented by POWERGRID.
