India Unfolds The World's Biggest Solar Power Plant

It's a proud moment for everyone; India has achieved the biggest milestone of the modern times by installing the giant solar power station in Kamuthi, Tamil Nadu. The new Indian solar power plant is expected to produce more than 648 MW of energy that can provide power to 150,000 homes every day.

The solar panel facility is wide-spread around the area of 10 square km which has earned it the title of the world's biggest solar power plant. Before this, Topaz Solar Farm, California which has the capacity of 550 MW was known to be the world's largest.

India has managed to erect this plant by taking not more than eight months, which is another milestone for the Indian government, as we earlier discussed the nation's idea to power 60 million homes by 2022 using the Sun.

As the saying goes, "Action speaks louder than words."

As the saying goes,

India didn't just claim that they're going to make it happen; instead, they worked hard upon it, and the results are tremendous. It will serve a huge purpose for Indians. Let's hope that this plant delivers what is expected from it.

That's all, folks!
