The plant will generate 90 million kilowatt hour of electricity a year, enough to power 250,000 homes.

A 55 megawatt solar power plant was commissioned in Rajasthan on Wednesday by solar power major Welspun Energy Limited. Part of the union government’s national mission, this is Asia’s largest single location solar photovoltaic power plant. The plant will generate 90 million kilowatt hour of electricity a year, enough to power 250,000 homes, a statement from the company said.

"The ministry of new and renewable energy plans to illuminate every household in India with clean energy. This project shows that we are moving in the right direction. It has provided sustainable employment opportunities to the locals and resulted in several social initiatives that have benefited local communities.

The industry acknowledges the company's contribution to the nation and its commitment to innovation and best practices that led to the timely completion of this landmark project," said the Union Minister for renewable power, Farook Abdullah, who inaugurated the plant.
