A solar farm that benefits farmers

post-image

A unique feature of the Pavagada Solar Park in Karnataka India is that land used in the entire park is leased from farmers, which has lowered the park’s cost. Farmers are paid per acre with a five percent escalation every two years for land that is being utilized for the solar park development. Since Pavagada is a drought-hit area, this arrangement is helpful to farmers.
