The Kurnool Solar Park was set up by Andhra Pradesh Solar Power Corporation through a joint venture special purpose vehicle, in which Solar Energy Corporation of India has 50% stake, Andhra Pradesh Generation Corporation (41%) and New and Renewable Energy Development Corporation (9%).
About 9 square miles of land was acquired for the project and common infrastructure, including roads, were laid for the project, located close to Kurnool. Over 2,500 people were engaged for construction and a skill development centre was set up by Greenko, one of the renewable energy companies.
Of the 1,000 MW, 500 MW was implemented by Greenko, which acquired the asset contract from the US-based bankrupt SunEdison and 350 MW by Soft Bank Energy. The remaining 150 MW was implemented by Azure Power (100 MW) and Adani Group-backed Prayatna Developers (50 MW).
