India connects 360 MW solar to the grid
Half of the largest solar park in India is now connected to the national grid. The plant is located near Kamuthi in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Of the total 648 MW of capacity, 360 MW is now connected to the grid.
(…) The project contributes to India’s vision of achieving 100 GW of solar power by 2022, with the overall aim of diversifying its energy mix to meet growing demand while minimizing environmental impact.
As part of this plan, the government has issued a proposal to implement 25 ultra-mega solar power projects with capacities between 500 and 1,000 MW over a period of five years.
The government of Tamil Nadu is also pursuing a solar policy which envisages a solar generation capacity addition of 3,000 MW. (…)
Even with this partial commissioning, the project has become the largest solar park in the country of Mody. This huge solar park, which includes smaller projects from various project developers, is located in Charanka district, Gujarat. The current capacity of the Charanka power plant stands at 345 MW.

But there is more news from India:
CSP Tower installation
The Indian Company EZON Energy Solutions invents and implements a 3 Axis Solar Controllers (CSP tech), capability to track the sun while it shifts the orbit and generates more Units per MW (20-25% extra Power) at 7 to 9% extra cost.
The next one is 28MW going live in Karnataka, India.
