Information

The concept of the ‘solar park’ was first developed in India and China seven or eight years ago. Regional energy agencies in states such as Gujarat, Qinghai and Gansu identified suitable locations where several solar power plants could be sited together. The coordinators provided for high-capacity grid connections and often also procured or provided the land.

Probably the most notable early example is the Charanka Solar Park in India’s Patan district. When this was first opened in 2012 by Gujarat’s then chief minister, Narendra Modi, it had a combined capacity of 224 MWP from 19 individual solar power plants, of which the largest were 25P MW each. It has since been expanded to over 500 MW of overall capacity.

The largest solar parks now house over 50 individual solar power plants. The solar park concept has subsequently been adopted elsewhere in Asia and the Middle East. A similar approach was implemented by the Bureau of Land Management in the United States, when it designated several ‘Solar Energy Zones’, such as that at Dry Lake in Nevada.

The following list selects the solar parks, which are believed to have at least 500 MWAC of current operational capacity (typically equivalent to 600 MWP). Solar parks are expanded progressively over time so, where possible, the potential final capacity of each has also been identified. For larger online images, click the hyperlinks in the text.
