Get to know more about TDP Achievements.

Andhra Pradesh Energy Department achieved another milepost in Energy output on 8th Jan 2019 as the State is inaugurating the Kurnool Ultra Mega Solar Park (1000 MW) in Orvakal in the Kurnool district. Former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu unveiled the solar park during his visit to the district. Kurnool district governance and TDP Political party leaders made arrangements for the visit of the Chief Minister.

The Andhra Pradesh state government acquired acres of land for Kurnool Ultra Mega Solar Park (1000 MW) in a record period of nine months without disturbing a single lodging house. Around 91% of the land is government and assigned land which isn't suitable for farming. Kurnool Mega Solar Park is the 3rd largest solar power park in the world at a single site. Tengger Desert Solar Park (1547 MW), China, and Bhadla Solar Park (1365 MW), India are the two biggest premises in the world. Now, Kurnool will enthral the third position, and it is said to be one of the achievements of TDP under the leadership of N. Chandrababu Naidu.

The solar park is an alloy of Andhra Pradesh state and central government collaboration. As the implementing agency, the Andhra Pradesh Solar Power Corporation Pvt Ltd (APSPCL) is a collaborative adventure between the state and central government. The National Solar Energy Corporation of India has 50% of APSPCL shares, while the state power generation company, APGENCO has 41%, and the state New and Renewable Energy Development Corporation holds 9 percent.

The total investment made in the solar park is Rs. 7,143.77 crore and has been constructed in a record time of only 24 months. It was constructed on 5683.22 acres of land. Out of which, the government land is 3,494.29 acres, the assigned land is 1,674.14 acres, and the patta land is 514.79 acres. Infrastructure installations like roads, rain spouts, and water supply networks were supplied by APSPCL. It can generate 282 jobs. The expert workers will get 499 jobs, semi-skilled workers 228, and unskilled 555.


The Indian public government handed an allotment of ₹ 2 million per MW to APSPCL. Of the park’s total 1000MW, 500 MW was developed by GreenKo (transferred from Sun Edison), 350 MW by SoftBank Energy, 100 MW by Azure Power, and the final 50 MW by Adani.

The Kurnool Ultra Mega Solar Park generated over 800 million units of energy by October 2017 and saved over 700,000 tons of carbon dioxide. Addressing water deficiency concerns, the entire park's water needs including water used for cleaning solar panels and supplying water — are met through a reservoir created for rainwater harvesting.

The Kurnool Ultra Mega Solar Park is an innovative example of the huge strides that India is making in accelerating solar energy. You can get more news about regional and Chandrababu Naidu Contributions from our website.
