The project will come up on barren government land as one MW power generation needs two hectares tract of land. The plant is expected to start generating solar energy by March 2017. The project – Rewa Ultra Mega Solar – is a joint venture of Solar Energy Corporation of India and MP Urja Vikas Nigam, where in both parties have 50 per cent stake. At present, world’s largest solar power project – Ivanpah Solar Power Facility of 392MW – is at Mojave deserts in California, United States.
