The planned capacity is expected to be operationalized within the next five years. When completed, the Khavda renewables park will be the largest renewable energy installation in the world. The 30 GW Khavda renewables park is expected to generate 81 billion units of clean electricity and power 16.1 million homes each year, helping to annually offset 58 million tons of CO2 emissions. Khavda is a promising location for wind and solar energy projects. The region has 2,060 kWh/m2 of high solar irradiation and is also blessed with one of the best wind resources in India.
