Rajasthan is most strongly positioned to drive India’s Renewable Energy target of 450 GW by the year 2030.
With the highest installed solar generation capacity (over 8000 MW), it leads India’s renewable energy bandwagon. The state is also among the top five states in India in terms of installed wind generation capacity. Rajasthan receives the highest solar radiation in the country (5.72 Kwh/m2/day), has the highest number of clear sunny days (>325) in a year and has vast tracts of flat land available at competitive rates making it the most suitable place for setting up of solar generation units.
The state is home to world’s largest fully operational 2245 MW Solar Park in Bhadla, Jodhpur spread over 5783 hectares.
