Solar Energy full steam ahead in India

One of India’s leading solar energy developers, Mahindra Solar One announced plans to move forward with a 50 megawatt solar plant in Rajasthan, India.  Funded in part by the U.S. Export Import Bank, the project is yet another example of how U.S. and Indian entities are working together to drive solar energy development in India.
An estimated 400 million people in India, more than the total U.S. population, have no access to reliable energy, and over 90 percent of these 400 million live in rural India.
