According to the bank website, "Rajasthan completed the installation of about 1767 MW of wind and 45 MW of solar generation at the end of 2011 using surplus transmission capacity in the grid. The state's investment plan for renewable energy targets installation of about 8,000 MW of solar and wind projects by 2018. These include private solar and wind power projects to be set up primarily in the renewable energy rich resource areas of Western Rajasthan (in Jodhpur, Bikaner, Barmer and Jaisalmer) including in the solar park being developed in Bhadla by the Rajasthan Renewable Energy Corporation. The Program would support transmission facilities for evacuation of renewable energy to the state and national grid."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADBP
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
