The 2,000 MW park, named as ‘Shakti Sthala’, spans across 13,000 acres spread over five villages and is a benchmark in the unique people’s participation in power model put on ground, according to officials. The park’s development is anchored by the Karnataka Solar Power Development Corp.

The project has been executed within a record time of two years, with zero land acquisition.
