PM Modi lays foundation of India’s largest renewable energy park in Gujarat

PM Modi on Tuesday laid the foundation of India’s largest hybrid renewable energy park having 30 gigawatt (GW) capacity at Vighakot village in the district of Kutch in Gujarat.

He said that the plant would provide employment to about one lakh individuals and power produced from it would curb five crore tonne of carbon dioxide emissions every year, which is equal to planting nine crore trees.

“This park will be spread over 70,000 hectares of land, equivalent to Singapore and Bahrain. About Rs 1.5 lakh crore will be invested in the construction of this park,” PM Modi said in his speech.

He added that the setting up of wind turbines along the border region would strengthen and improve India’s border security as well.

The park will have a hybrid park zone for wind and solar energy storage, as well as an exclusive zone for wind park activities.

India’s solar power capacity has increased 16 per cent in the past six years, added PM Modi in his address.
