SolarThe world's largest 750 Mega Watts (MW) solar power station will be built in Rewa district's Gudh area, Madhya Pradesh's Energy Minister Rajendra Shukla said. "Global tenders for commissioning the solar power station in an area over 1,500 hectares at Bandwar region in Gudh tehsil of Rewa, will be invited shortly," Mr Shukla told PTI.

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, he added.

According to him, the project will come up on barren government land as one MW power generation needs two hectares tract of land. Mr Shukla further added that the cost of generating one MW solar energy comes to around Rs. 7.6 crore.

At present, world's largest solar power project - Ivanpah Solar Power Facility of 392 MW -- is at Mojave deserts in California, United States, the minister informed.

In February last year, Narendra Modi, as BJP's prime ministerial candidate, inaugurated Asia's largest solar power project at Neemuch.

As per reports, Welspun's solar power project in Neemuch, some 400 km from here, had come up at a cost of around Rs. 1,100 crore on 305 hectares of land.
