Google News article Energy experts in India say Enphase Energy is the largest solar power plant in the country.
In the last six months, Enphase Power has installed solar panels on more than 2,500 rooftops in the northern part of the country, where most solar power plants are located.
Enphase has also built an array of solar cells in the city of Agra and is currently preparing a large solar power station in the southern part of India, where it is constructing its second mega solar project.
The company says its solar power system will reduce India’s energy consumption by an estimated 70 percent by 2032, as the cost of solar panels falls to about half the cost when compared with coal.
Enph Energy said that its project will be a 50 percent reduction in the carbon dioxide emissions from power generation, as well as an increase in the production of renewable energy.
The company is now working on installing its solar panels in Agra, and is expected to complete the first stage of construction in 2017.
“Enphase Power’s solar power project will provide the world’s first and only large-scale solar power facility in India.
This project will have a global impact and help in reducing India’s carbon dioxide emission by 70 percent compared to 2020,” said Anshu Garg, Executive Director of Enph Power.
Energy experts said that India’s solar energy capacity is expected at about 200 gigawatts.
EnPhase Energy’s solar project is the second mega project by the company.
The first mega solar power site in the world, the Solar Energy Corporation of India’s (SECI) Agra Solar Park project was completed in September 2017 and will be India’s largest solar project with a capacity of about 50 gigawatts by 2020.
Gigawatts is the average solar capacity of the largest power plants in the United States.
In contrast, the Enphase project is expected with a power capacity of around 200 gigawatt.
India’s average solar power capacity is about 0.3 gigawatts, according to Energy Information and Resource Management (EIRM) in November 2017.
