It is Pleasant and glorious day in history of Madhya Pradesh Today. The Power purchase and other developer agreements of Our Ambitious “Rewa Solar Power project “were signed in Bhopal today. The 750 MW Solar Power Plant at Rewa District in MP is our step towards achieving central government’s Goal of achieving 40% Clean power by 2030.This Power plant is one of the largest single site power project of the globe, and will replace Kamuthi Power Project (648 MW) in tamilnadu as the largest Solar Power project in India, on completion.
RUMSL (Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Ltd) is a joint venture between Madhya Pradesh Urja Vikas Nigam Limited and Solar Energy Corporation of India Ltd. The project has achieved record low tariff of Rs.3.30 per unit over 25 years and will be completed in three phases each of 250MW spread over 1,500 hectares of land.
