Air-conditioned Volvo buses had been arranged for the purpose. Yet, and this is the good part, the roads were extremely good and smooth. In fact, the roads were exceptionally good wherever we travelled — wide, smooth and made of tar which is preferable any day to concrete. Moving on, make-shift air conditioned halls had been set up at Charanka for the inauguration of the biggest Solar Park in Asiawith more than MW having been commissioned so far.

Many states in the country like Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh have contributed tremendously in their support to use of renewable energy. From heating to to electrical and even pumping needs are powered by solar photovoltaic panels installed in the campus. The solar batteries store the solar power generated during the day time in order to power the building during night. The campus community kitchen also uses two concentrating reflector-type solar cookers are mostly used to cook the food in the kitchen.
Commissioned in , the plant will produce mw of solar power once fully developed by The park at Charanka, spread across 5, acres, has MW of generation capacity of both solar and wind energy. It has a concentrator solar dish installed at its kitchen where 4, meals are cooked everyday. The solar dish heats the water to generate steam that is used for cooking. The system automatically tracks the sun from rise to set on both the east-west and north-south axes with an accuracy of more than The receiver is designed to operate at temperatures up to degrees Celsius and works as a solar boiler, making it an effective replacement of conventional polluting fuels such as furnace oil, diesel, PNG and coal.
Two paraboloid solar concentrator dishes provide about kW of cooling to the building. SunEdison India commissioned the project in April The power plant which is located at Chandrasan village near Mehsana, 45 kms from Ahmedabad will generate 1. The fact that the panels are built over the canal is meant to ensure that around 9 million litres of water does not evaporate. The project will eliminate the need of 11, acres of land required for a solar project of this magnitude and save 2 billion litres of water annually, officials have said.
The project is due for completion next year. Vast acreages of Neemuch district are steadily being transformed into rows of gleaming modules. Around 70 solar reflectors are mounted on the rooftop. These dishes concentrate sunlight on receivers that contain water, generating steam that is piped down to the kitchen for cooking 50, meals per day. It utilises single make single model WECs at a single location.
