The Indian state of Rajasthan is set to be home to the largest solar power plant in the world.

Reports claim six state-owned companies have joined forces and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the 4,000MW solar project in north-west India.

The solar farm is expected to supply around 6,400 million units of clean electricity and cut four million tonnes of carbon emissions every year.

It will be built across 19,000 acres of land and will be developed in different phases within the next seven to eight years. Reports suggest the first phase, which includes 1,000MW of capacity, will be set up in around three years.

Last week the world’s largest solar-powered bridge was officially opened at London’s Blackfriars railway station.
