Solar power in Gujarat is a fast developing industry given that the large state is mostly arid. Gujarat was one of the first states to develop solar generation capacity in India.

A total of about 1100 MW were commissioned as of March 2016, with individual solar parks ranging from hundreds of kW to 40 MW capacity.[1]

The state's installed solar power generation capacity stood at 1637 MW in December, 2018.

State solar policy[edit]

As of January 2019, Gujarat has an installed capacity of 7,645 MW of renewable energy, that meets only 28 per cent of the total capacity. The Government of Gujarat plans to take it up to 22,922 MW by 2022, making up 53 per cent.[2]

The state has set an ambitious target of adding 15,000MW to 20,000MW total energy generation over the next few years. The state government has now chalked out an action plan to increase the share of renewable energy in the total energy generation from 10 per cent to 17 per cent by 2022. In January 2019, the government announced that solar power generation will be increased by 3,000MW annually.[3]

In addition to the existing solar power policy, the state has also come out with a solar-wind hybrid policy, looking to establish four-five such parks with at least 2000 MW capacity.[4]

Gujarat Solar Park-1[edit]

Gujarat solar park 1, also called Charanka Solar Park, is being built on a 2,000-hectare (4,900-acre) plot of land near Charanka village in Patan district, northern Gujarat. So far, the park has witnessed investments of Rs 5,365 crore and generated 3,441 million units till date.

Installed generation capacity is at about 615 MW at present, having been commissioned by 31 developers in the Solar Park. GACL (Gujarat Alkalies and Chemicals Limited) is setting up 30 MW Solar PV plant, and GSFC (Gujarat State Fertilizers and Chemicals) is in the process of setting up 10 MW project.

The Gujarat Power Corporation Limited (GPCL), the project's developer, said in April, 2018 that further capacity addition of 150 MW taking the total to 790 MW may be opted for soon given the availability of land in the Park.[86]

Projects of 95MW are under construction and 30MW under planning as of December, 2018.[87]
