Anantapur is all set to become the world top renewable energy power producer by 2020, with Solar and Wind Power. The Mega Solar Park at NP Kunta is going to come up with 1500 MW. The first phase of 250 MW would be ready very soon. By 2020, NTPC plans to surpass California's facility, Mojave Desert which has a capacity of 1,000 MW. NTPC aims to build generation capacity of 128 GW by 2032 with more emphasis on renewable energy including 100 GW solar energy by 2022.
Gujarat and Rajasthan are leaders in solar energy projects right now, but with the proposed solar parks, Anantapur is going to be the leader in couple of years. Rayalaseema is said to be the most efficient area for renewable energy plants. Private generating companies are giving top priority to tap solar and wind energy in Anantapur, Kurnool and Kadapa areas. Axis Energy Group is going to install 4000 MW wind power projects and 2500 MW solar power projects in Anantapur. The company plans to achieve these targets by 2020.
