Guinness World Records has confirmed that the world’s largest solar tree has been installed in India.

The construction, which has 309.83m2 surface area of ​​solar panels, was constructed at the Center of Excellence for Agricultural Machinery, Ludhiana, Punjab by the Central Research Institute of Mechanical Engineering, which is part of the Government Council for Scientific and Industrial Research.

The structure, which broke the previous solar tree record of 67m2 of panel area, has a generating capacity of 53.6 kWp and can generate approximately 160-200 kWh per day.

Harish Hirani, Director of the Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute, said: “These solar trees have many applications such as distributed power generation to meet [to] the needs of the various integrated agricultural activities for charging electric tractors, electric tillers and electric vehicles [electric vehicle] charging stations; operate agricultural pumps for irrigation purposes; solar cooking systems for food preparation on the farm site; and supply the cold storage needs of farm produce, thereby increasing shelf life [of the goods].”
