The solar power plant in Jumilla, Murcia, Spain is currently one of the two largest solar energy plant in the world. It produces 20 megawatts with 120,000 PV panels. The solar plant was built over 11 months with 400 people in an area that locals say is perfect since it receives about 300 days of sun a year.
Solar Energy might be the next big thing for developed economies. We are already short of 4000MW of energy. The rapidly changing geopolitical scenarios in the context of raised oil prices dictates only one thing i.e., we have to go for Hydroelectric Power. In the past we have lost too much on the political front. We failed to decide to build any new hydroelectric project since 1970s. By the grace of Allah our country is blessed with hydroelectric potential but we have already buried our strategic advantage in the gloomy grave of politics.
Anyhow, only 150 million Rs. have been allocated in the current budget for developing alternative energy resources. Forget bio fuel and other such hip things.
