MEGAWATTS (MW) – Minimum 100 MW

The MWs sometimes vary between sources. As a result, the most recent or complete summary was used whenever possible. In some cases, the MW represents the amount currently operating, while at other times it is the intended capacity of the solar park upon completion of all phases.

  1. Dholera Solar Park = 5,000 MW (5 GW) by 2030 – under development
  2. Bhadla Solar Park (2020) = 2,245 MW (2.245 GW)
  3. NP Kunta Ultra Mega Solar Park (2021) = 2,229 MW (2.229 GW)
  4. Pavagada Solar Park (2019) = 2050 MW (2.05 GW)
  5. Ananthapuramu-I Solar Park (2020-21) = 1,500 MW (1.5 GW)
  6. Jalaun Solar Park = 1,200 MW (1.2 GW) – under development
  7. 3-way tie Kurnool Ultra Mega Solar Park (2017); Kadapa Ultra Mega Solar Park (2020); and Kaza Solar Park (proposed) = 1,000 MW (1.0 GW) each
  8. Chhattarpur Solar Park (2023) = 950 MW
  9. Nokh Solar Park (2022) = 925 MW
  10. tie Rewa Ultra Mega Solar (2018) and Phalodi-Pokaran Solar Park (2023) = 750 MW
  11. Kamuthi Solar Power Project (2017) = 648 MW
  12. Charanka (Gujarat) Solar Park (2012) = 615 MW
  13. Omkareswar Floating Solar Park (2023-24) = 600 MW
  14. tie Agar Solar Park (2022) and Barethi Solar Park = 550 MW each
