"Reliance Power signs MoU with the government of Rajasthan to develop 6,000 MW of solar power projects," the company said here in a release. The MoU was signed by state Chief Minister  Vasundhara Raje and Reliance Power chairman Anil Ambani.

Raje also dedicated Reliance Power's 100 MW Concentrated Solar  Project (CSP) in Rajasthan, at Pokhran in Jaisalmer district, to the nation.

Rajasthan Sun Technique Energy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of  Reliance Power, was awarded the CSP project in 2010 based on a  international competitive bidding, the company said.

"The CSP plant is expected to generate about 250 million  kilowatt hours of clean and green energy annually, equivalent  to consumption of 230,000 households," the statement said.

Reliance Power has the largest portfolio of power  projects in the private sector based on coal, gas, hydro and  renewable energy with an operating portfolio of nearly 6,000  MW, it added.
