Mahagenco to set up three mega solar parks in Vid

Energy minister Nitin Raut has decided to go for solar energy in a big way. He has directed Mahagenco to set up several solar parks having total capacity of 602 MW in three phases. In the second phase, three solar parks having total capacity of 390 MW would come up in Vidarbha.
Raut told the media that in the first phase 187 MW capacity would come up at Kaudgaon (50 MW), Latur (60 MW), thermal power station lands at Bhusawal, Koradi, Parli and Nasik (52 MW) and Sakri (25 MW). “Loan will be taken from German government agency KfW and money sanctioned earlier by state government would also be utilized. Mahagenco has been directed to submit the proposal for cabinet approval immediately,” said the minister.
Mahagenco officials said that solar panels would be installed on vacant land near ash bund in Koradi and the solar project would not affect the 2x660 MW thermal expansion project that is at present in limbo.
