SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) – Images have finally been released showing the sheer size of the new solar power plant in southern India, the facility in Kamuthi, Tamil Nadu, has a capacity of 648 MW and covers an area of nearly 2,500 acres.

That makes it the world’s largest solar power plant at a single location, taking the title from the Topaz Solar Farm in California, which has a capacity of 550 MW. They must have some fantastic Solar Battery Average Lifespan in their batteries.

Built in just eight months, the plant is cleaned each day by a robotic system, which is charged by its own solar panels. At full capacity, the plant is expected to produce enough electricity to power 150,000 homes. It was built from 2.5 million individual solar modules, and cost $679 million to construct. In order to check the panels are working properly, a solar monitoring system is being used by the solar farm owners. If the solar panels are not working as they should be, the $679 million investment would be pointless, so it’s important that the owners are regularly checking the solar panels data.

With its installation, India has nudged itself further ahead in total solar capacity across the nation above the 10 GW mark, according to a statement by research firm Bridge to India, joining only a handful of countries that can make this claim. It is a very exciting development; most countries have a large number of successful residential solar power companies like ProjectSolarUK which supply a multitude of homes, and some have managed to infiltrate the commercial and public sector which has given the industry and environmental health a huge boost, but only a handful have built solar farms of this scale.

As solar power becomes more and more common, India are expected to become the world’s third-largest solar market beginning in 2017. They will be third to China and the United States. Despite the rapidly increasing solar market, India will need to further bolster its solar presence to achieve the ambitious targets set by the government.

By the year 2022, India hopes to have at least 60 million homes powered by solar plants, It is part of the government’s goal to produce 40 percent of its power from non-fossil fuels by 2030.

Those that live in Australia looking to adopt solar power in their home may be interested in a Solar Power Inverter and the services provided by Solar Man Australia.
