    According to an announcement made by senior government officials, the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh plans to enhance its solar power generation capacity to about 3 GW in the next two years.

    Domestic as well as international developers are bidding aggressively for new projects in the state due to availability of vast barren land, high solar irradiation, and favourable solar policy in the state. The government of Madhya Pradesh has introduced single-window clearance for solar projects that is helping the developers in speedy implementation of the projects — the approval process was once considered to be the major reason for the project delays in the state.

    The state government plans to build one of the largest solar power parks in the world, one with 750 MW of capacity, in the Rewa district. The project will be built on 1,500 acres of land and is expected to be operational by 2017. The state’s energy Minister, Rajendra Shukla announced that global tenders for the solar project will be sent out shortly.

    Madhya Pradesh has always been on the forefront of the development of solar power. The current installed capacity stands at 650 MW, and 1,500 MW of projects are under implementation. The state’s installed solar capacity is currently placed third after Rajasthan and Gujarat. The state is also home to the largest solar power project in India developed by a single company.

    Recently, Madhya Pradesh offered a capacity of 300 MW to prospective project developers. The tender was oversubscribed over 12 times with project developers offering to develop over 3.7 GW of capacity. The action yielded the lowest-ever solar power tariff in India.

    Mauritius-based SkyPower Southeast Asia Holdings secured rights to develop 3 projects of 50 MW capacity each at tariffs ranging from Rs 5.051/kWh (7.95¢/kWh) to Rs 5.298/kWh (8.34¢/kWh).

    Good news. But I am still waiting for the nuclear plant in Mandla. Region is one of the poorest and a nuclear plant could be a god send for the local economy.

    MP is really flying under the radar of Presstitutes and Leftists(unlike guj and Maha). The Nuke plant will also be the Indian 700 MW reactor one. I guess it's 2*700 and hence very cheap :lol:

    Depends on your definition of "under the radar".

    Prestitutes left no stone unturned to project Mama as Idi Amin and MP as Uganda. You can find of tons of such things in the media but very casual remarks about the growth story.

    True but compare it to Guj and MH .... we have relatively fared better. Also we were lagging UP . Now we have them beat by a mile and UP has secular govt so no one questions MP now.

    Let Mama walk the gauntlet. It is going to be good for everybody in future, including for Mama.

    Mama was a softie and still is. Needs some marination before he too will turn into another Modi.

    Opposition is digging a ditch for itself by targeting Mama.

    Actually I wish something like this happens to another softie - Raman Singh. Wish to see the death of langda at the hands of Raman Singh (off course politically, damn it!).

    Sushma Swaraj is now fully turned against the opposition - Amatya Rakshas has been turned into a collaborator by the Chanakya. Remember she used to be so confused about what the hell it means to be a BJP-MP. Now she is so goddamned clear about even an important Minister's Role-In-Saffron-Varnam.

    A little bit of fear and a somewhat longer torture always help to improve ones instincts.

    It's always great to see India is advancing at such a great pace in India. Recently Chief Minister of Karnataka recently inaugurated a solar power plant with a 2000 megawatt capacity at Pavagada in Tumakuru district which is about 70 km from Bengaluru. The expenditure of the plant was around Rs.16500 crore and spread across 5 villages. As of now the solar power plant generates 600 MW power which is quite awesome. Another 1400MW power plant will be ready till the year end. Adani Green Energy is taking care of this project. Thanks to big private solar companies like Adani, Tata, Cleanmax and Agni Solar Systems who help setting up their solar power plants.

    This is the way forward, it time we shut down all the coal fired power plants and harness the energy of god i.e. the sun, the wind and geothermal energy.

    Coal powered plants are here to stay atleast till 2050.

    By that time global warming would have wiped out mankind from the face of the earth.

    Nahi sirjee, relax...
    Current thinking is that dependency on coal will be gradually decreased. There are coal power plants which are yet to cross 25 years of age in India, the ones which are 25 years of age and above are being converted to super critical thermal power plants.

    There are a few technical challenges in solar power generation and distribution, w.r.t smart distribution. Once sorted India will go full on into solar.

    It’s just a matter of 4-5 years, the real push will start on solar.
