The government, in a bid to strengthen its footing in the renewable energy segment, is planning to set up a 500 MW solar park at Vikhran.
"The entire investment in the park will come from private parties. There are two private players who are looking to set up solar power plants in Maharashtra," said Singh, refusing to divulge names of the interested companies.
Dharma Patil, a local farmer from Vikhran, had committed suicide at Mantralaya in January this year, demanding adequate compensation to his land which was acquired for a thermal plant, which was later changed to the solar park.
