Planned 5 GW Indian solar plant will be the worlds largest



1/14/19 | Uma Gupta | PV Magazine

India has resumed its contest with China to host the world’s biggest solar park and the projected Ladakh solar project could bring the crown back to south Asia.

According to U.S.-based insurance provider SolarInsure, as of June 2017, China’s Datong Solar Power Project – with a projected capacity of 3 GW – has the potential to become the world’s biggest single-location solar PV project, once completed.

The Ladakh project is expected to be complete by 2023, with abundant sunlight and clear air making Ladakh unusually suitable for solar technologies.

The power generated from the 5 GW PV plant in Leh district will be transmitted, along a 900 km stretch of the Leh-Manali road, for consumption by Kaithal district in the state of Haryana. It will be supplemented by another 2.5 GW solar project in the Kargil district, to provide electricity to light up the plains and reduce dependence on diesel generators for a population that remains cut off for around half the year...more: https://www.pv-magazine.com/2019/01/14/planned-5-gw-indian-solar-plant-will-be-the-worlds-largest/

1. India is another one in dire straits when it comes to energy

With just one half of one percent of the world’s proven oil reserves, India is set to run out of oil in 15 to 20 years.

Currently India is dependent on outside sources for crude oil to meet their increasing demand. That presents a real problem as it is at the mercy of world politics. It also faces a Shortage of Oil Refining Capacity, as they play catch-up to build new refineries to meet demand.

They can only refine about 25 percent of their demand. A shortage of raw materials has forced India to fast track renewables, so solar is not just a fancy idea, it is a move toward survival.

2. You can't eat a solar panel.

So, the country will starve by taking that much land out of agriculture, but they will have power.
