Diken (Neemuch): Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi today unveiled country's largest solar power plant at Diken in Jwad area of Neemuch district of Madhya Pradesh.


The 151 (DC) MW project operated by leading power generating company Welspun Energy Limited (WEL) has been commissioned eight months ahead of schedule and is expected to cater to power needs of 6.24 lakh homes in the state, besides mitigating over 2.16 tonnes of carbon emission annually.

BJP's prime ministerial candidate congratulated MP chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for linking the earth with sky through the project.

Chouhan added that the state is targeting to generate 2500 MW of wind and solar power by 2015 and is now second after Gujarat in providing 24x7 power to its people.
