India is adding substantial renewable generation capacity to the country. Rajasthan with its huge solar potential is already witnessing development of various ultra mega solar power parks. These projects are primarily being constructed to transfer power from potential solar energy zones thus helping the growth of renewable energy share in the Indian Grid.
