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
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.
