CCEA approves enhanced capacity for solar parks

The CCEA has approved the enhancement of capacity of solar parks from 20,000 MW to 40,000 MW under the Scheme for Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power Projects. The enhanced capacity will ensure the setting up of at least 50 solar parks, each with a capacity of 500 MW and above. In addition, smaller parks will be considered in the Himalayan and other hilly states under the scheme. These parks will come up by 2019-20 with support of Rs 81 billion from the central government.
