India has quadrupled its solar capacity in the last 3 years

India has quadrupled its solar capacity in the last 3 years

Earlier this year India unveiled the world’s largest solar farm and have quadrupled their solar capacity in the last 3 years, bringing electricity to millions of households.

In November of last year, India unveiled the world’s largest solar farm at Kamuthi, in Tamil Nadu. The solar farm stretches across 2,500 acres with its 2.5 million solar modules being cleaned every day by a team of robots.

While countries like Germany and Britain have been slow to install solar power after the withdrawal of government support, India and China have been steadily increasing their number of installations.

India has quadrupled its capacity in the past 3 years to 12GW – with 1GW being able to power around 725,000 homes. As many as 44% of India’s rural households lack electricity.

China is also installing solar panels at a similar pace with its current capacity at 77GW.
