In a major jolt to India's solar energy programme, the Rajasthan government might cancel the 4,000-Mw solar UMPP (ultra mega power project), which was expected to come up near Sambhar Lake.

The number of herbivorous animals in the Gir wildlife sanctuary increased by 6.48% in the last one year.

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.

It’s good news for environmentalists and bird lovers, particularly in the state and the general as a whole.

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.

After conventional ultra mega thermal power projects, India is set to launch similar projects in the non-conventional energy space.
