    US is preventing India to provide subsidy to Indian solar manufacturers while doing the same at home,we should build more thermal plants

    Delhi Metro has already signed a deal to buy a big share of electricity from 750 MW Rewa Solar Power Plant , to run the Metro in the presently under construction expansion phase.

    Indian Railways apart from installing solar cells at railway stations to fulfill needs of passengers at stations , is now contemplating getting its own 800 MW Solar Power Plant to power electric locomotives.

    It is also into a discussion with NE states to buy electricity from the presently under construction hydro power projects across North East.

    Solar , Hydro , Nuke and Ultra Mega Coal Fired Power Plants [They have relatively much more higher efficiency and lower emissions as they make at least 4 GW of electricity at the same place using modern tech. ] is the future.

    Behind this good good feeling pic of lots of development on Solar front , we are on the verge of another coal fired Industrialisation wave in India. We cannot keep ourselves poor to balance the misdeeds of others.

    Could have been averted had the promises of Paris climate accord been upheld (transfer of tech and financial assistence to developing nations) but India knew that was never going to happen.

    That's about Ultra Supercritical Technology, not the size of the plant
