State-owned NTPC on Tuesday said it will set up country's single largest solar park at Rann of Kutch in Gujarat following the go-ahead from the government. The 4,750-megawatt (MW) renewable energy park at Rann of Kutch in Khavada Gujarat will be set up by NTPC Renewable Energy ltd, the power giant said in a statement.
"NTPC Renewable Energy Ltd (NTPC REL), a 100 per cent subsidiary of NTPC, has received the go-ahead from the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) to set up 4,750 MW renewable energy park at Rann of Kutch in Khavada, Gujarat.

NTPC REL was given the go-ahead by the MNRE on July 12, 2021 under Mode 8 (Ultra Mega Renewable Energy Power Park) of Solar Park Scheme. The subsidiary company has plans to generate green hydrogen on a commercial scale from the park, NTPC said.
