India has completed the construction of the world's largest solar power plant Kamote. The object uses 2.5 million solar panels installed on the area of 10.36 square kilometers, and is located in Tamil Nadu. Construction took just 8 months.
The capacity of the new factory for the production of electricity is 648 MW. It will be enough to power over 150,000 homes. The construction of the largest solar power plant of India is long an important step to ensure that its population is more affordable electricity. By 2022, the country plans to reach the level of providing solar energy more than 60 million homes, and by 2030 to ensure the production of 40 percent of the needed energy for the country through non-fossil sources.
Due to the construction of the world's largest solar power plant and the active promotion of projects for the production of cheap energy in India next year to take third place in the world in production of solar energy after China and the United States. It should also be noted that India is one of the most active supporters in the world to minimize or even eliminate the use of combustible fuels.
Production of renewable energy in the same Chile, for example, already exceeds the energy needs of the population of the Northern part of the country, which ultimately could lead to the fact that electricity in the country can be completely free. In the UK adopted a law according to which by 2025 the country will completely abandon the use of coal. Moreover, for the last 6 months the UK solar energy exceeded the amount of energy produced conventional coal stations. Spain wants to become a leader in the production of clean energy and move to 100 percent electricity consumption derived from renewable sources. To date, the country already produces enough volume every day to feed the more than 29 million homes.
All these countries show others that alternative energy can become the key to our bright future. Since the use of alternative energy becomes more available and cost effective, it is likely we will soon see that the pioneers of "green energy" will be joined by other countries. Let's hope one of them will fall and Russia. published
