Solar power is used throughout the world at various places. Putting in place many innovative systems on large and  small scales. There are many solar villages all over the world. Some of them are mentioned below : –

Village Bysaniavaripalle in southeastern state of Andhra Pradesh is  now 100 utilizing  solar power . Keringa in Southern Orissa , most of the people are living in extreme poverty & live upon primarily available income generating opportunities like selling seasonal agricultural products , breaking stones, construction workers etc. With the help of solar lams the entire village is now rely upon & bring change in their lives.

Families utilizing Solar energy

Solar power emerge as a boon to rural households in India. If we see the evolution of generating power with the help of solar energy is proved to be a boom & helped in rural transformation. In India first plant custom-built under JNNSM scheme REHPL at Sadeipali, , Orissa , Tata Power – Patapur, Orissa. Tata Power -, Osmanabad, Maharastra. , Amruth Solar Power Plant – Kadiri , Andhra Pradesh  are work out to set up in 2011. IIT Bombay – Gwal Pahari , Haryana  , Chandraleela Power Energy Narnaul Haryana, Green Infra Solar Energy Rajkot, TAL Solar Power Plant – Barabanki, UP . The Charanka Solar Park is a compilation of solar power stations with 214 MW were claimed to be completed in 2012. It is branch of Gujarat Solar Park a cluster of solar farms at a range of locations in the Gujarat state of India in general capability of approximately 690 MW . There are a sum total of 570 MW of solar parks alone in Golmund.

Solar energy around is well utilized in Europe , Saudi Arabia, Germany and many other countries are up to it. Village Freiburg in Germany is set up as a solar village & seen green movement form a long time.

Generates 80.7 MV electricity.


Setting up of Solar plants across the world is in one of the boom these days .Numerous large plants are under construction at various places all over the world . Some of them are :- The Desert Sunlight Solar Farm is a 550 MW solar power plant under construction in Riverside County, California, with the help of thin-film solar photovoltaic component made by Solar energy . The 230 MW Antelope Valley Solar Ranch is a First Solar photovoltaic project which is found   in the Antelope Valley area of the Western Mojave Desert expected to be completed in 2013.

The Topaz Solar Farm is a 550 MW photovoltaic power plant build in San Luis Obispo County and the  Blythe Solar Power Project is a 500 MW photovoltaic in Riverside County, California. The Agua Caliente Solar Project is a 290 megawatt photovoltaic solar producing capacity being built in Yuma County, Arizona.

The California Valley Solar Ranch (CVSR) is claim to produce around 250 megawatt MW by the use of   solar photovoltaic power plant, which is being built in the Carrizo Plain situated towards northeast of California Valley. Several plants are incorporated through agriculture and some use ground-breaking tracking systems that go after the sun’s every day trail across the sky to produce supplementary energy than conventional permanent mounted systems. Solar power plants have no fuel expenditure or release during process.

The Agua Caliente Solar Project ( Yuma County, Arizona ) is a 397 megawatt (MW) photovoltaic solar energy production ability is built by using very thin firm solar panels created first by Solar. 39 MW was available online up to December 2011. Moreover , the project is predictable to be accomplished by 2014

Golmud Solar park- Golmud Qinghai Province in China – Huanghe Hydropower’s is the largest in the country  with a capacity of 200 M W power. It is made up of photovoltaic power station and started Constructed in 2009 and it was made on October 29, 2011. Moreover 80 MW was make available by Yingli . This project is expected to generate the power up to 317.2 GWh/year .

In Ukraine the power plant established in 2009 . It has a feed-in tariff of approx. €0.46 per kilowatt hour upto 2030, which is one of the highest. It is called Perovo Solar Power Park station located at Perovo in Crimea, Ukraine is considered to be a biggest photovoltaic solar power generating deception in a universe in provisions of consecrated capability. It has upto 100 MWp photovoltaic power. It is estimated that   by July 2012 it would be the world’s fourth largest solar farm, made up of approximately 440,000 solar panels.

Similarly in Italy’s solar mega plant located in Montalto di Castro it   produces up 84.2 megawatts for electricity generation. In Canada near village Sarnia , Ontario a largest Photovoltaic Power Plant is set up commonly called as Sarnia Photovoltaic Plant in September 2010 . It was considered to be the world’s largest photovoltaic plant claim to be installed with capability of 97 MW generating power. It has since been surpassed by the Agua Caliente Solar Project with its 200 MW installed capacity. In 2009, Ontario introduce a Feed-in tariff renewable energy payments program paying up to CDN 44.3 cents per kW·h for large ground arrays such as the Sarnia plant. This makes Ontario’s one of the top feed in tariff programs in the world. First Solar developed, engineered, and constructed the facility, and it will operate the Sarnia Solar Project for Enbridge under a long-term contract. Enbridge will sell the power output of the facility to the Ontario Power Authority pursuant to 20-year power purchase agreements under the terms of the Ontario government’s Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program.
