The scheme for Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects was rolled out by Ministry of New & Renewable Energy on 12 December, 2014 with a target to set up at least 25 solar parks with aggregate capacity of 20,000 MW within a span of 5 years starting from 2014-15. The capacity of the Scheme was enhanced from 20,000 MW to 40,000 MW on 21 March, 2017. These parks are proposed to be set up by 2021-22.
The scheme envisages supporting the States and UTs in setting up solar parks at various locations in the country with a view to create required infrastructure for setting up of solar power projects.
The solar parks provide suitable developed land with all clearances, transmission system, water access, road connectivity, communication network, etc. The scheme facilitates and speeds up installation of grid connected solar power projects for electricity generation on a large scale.
All the States and Union Territories are eligible for getting benefit under the scheme.
The capacity of the solar parks shall be 500 MW and above. However, smaller parks are also considered in hilly States and States where there is acute shortage of non-agricultural land.
The solar parks may be developed by the agencies of the State Governments, CPSUs and private entrepreneurs. The implementing agency is termed as Solar Power Park Developer (SPPD).
Under the scheme, the Ministry provides Central Financial Assistance (CFA) of up to Rs. 25 lakh per solar park for preparation of Detailed Project Report (DPR). Beside this, CFA of up to Rs. 20.00 lakh per MW or 30% of the project cost, including Grid-connectivity cost, whichever is lower, is also provided on achieving the milestones prescribed in the scheme.
