At a time when Union minister for new and renewable energy Farooq Abdullah is contemplating to ask World Bank for an assistance of $500 million for the first phase of Sambhar ultra-mega solar power

Six state-owned firms, including BHEL and Power Grid Corporation, on Wednesday signed an initial agreement for setting up the world's largest ultra mega solar power project in Rajasthan.

With states like Madhya Pradesh making rapid strides in solar energy generation, more than four ultra mega solar power plants can come up in the country, according to Tarun Kapoor, Joint Secretary,

The ministry of new and renewable energy plans to set up four solar-based ultra mega power projects (UMPPs) to bring down the cost of power.
They would come up at Sambhar in Rajasthan, Khargoda in Gujarat and Ladakh and Kargil in J&K, said joint secretary in the ministry Tarun Kapoor at Intersolar India conference here. "We have thermal-based UMPPs, but now we are exploring the possibility of setting up mega solar projects. The aim is to bring down the cost of power to nearly Rs 5 per unit," he said.

India will build the world’s largest solar plant to generate 4,000 mw from sunlight near the Sambhar lake in Rajasthan that will sell electricity at an estimated rate of . 5.50 per unit.
