Biggest Solar PV Project in India ( Solar Thermal Magazine ). BYD Company Ltd. and Hindustan Clean Energy Limited have announced a solar coalition to be called Kindle Engineering & Construction Pvt. The project will cover BYD’s largest PV project in India, which will be initiative with a total capacity reaching 50MV.
Since November 2009, India government decided to implement “National Solar Mission”. One of the most important goals of India is to inject competitiveness and boost the development of the domestic PV market. The program will greatly promote the large-scale installation of photovoltaic systems and reduce the cost of solar power. Its successful implementation will allow module suppliers, independent photovoltaic / solar thermal-based power providers, and system integrators to work together more efficiently.
The project is located in Gujarat, on the country’s south west coast. The hometown of Narendra Modi, India’s sitting Prime Minister, Gujarat has become a hotbed for new technology projects, including solar initiatives which actually came years before Modi assumed power. In the past five years, Gujarat has become a leader in solar energy development, installing more than 3,000 megawatts, making up 40% of India’s total capacity. These changes have come in reaction the increased preponderance of power outages that are sweeping the region. This collaborative effort is great for both the Nation of India as well as BYD Company Ltd., as both entities continue to boost their reputation in the global new energy marketplace.
