With a photovoltaic panel surface area of 309.83 square meters, the solar tree has been officially certified by the Guinness Book of World Records (GWR) as the largest solar tree in the world.
Guinness World Records has confirmed that India has installed the world’s largest solar tree. The structure has a surface of 309.83m2 of solar panels and was built by India’s Central Mechanical Engineering Institute’s Centre of Excellence for Agricultural Machinery in Ludhiana, Punjab. The Institute is part of the Government’s Scientific and Industrial Research Council.
The construction broke the previous record for the surface area of a solar tree panel of 67m2 and produced 53.6kWp of electricity, which is estimated to generate 160-200kWh of electricity per day.
Harish Hirani, director of the Central Institute of Mechanical Engineering, said, “These solar trees have a wide range of applications, such as distributed power generation, to meet the demand for different integrated agricultural activities, for electric tractors, electric tillers and EV [electric vehicles] Charging stations; powering agricultural pumps for irrigation; providing solar-based cooking systems for food preparation sites on farms; powering the cold storage needs of produce to extend the shelf life of [goods].”\
