The project is expected to benefit the State utility by ₹2086 crore and ₹1220 crore to Delhi Metro in entire span of project life. The Model of Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Power Project has been included in PM’s Book of Innovation 2017 and awarded World Bank Group’s President award for Innovation and Excellence.

While IFC is the transaction adviser in the project, The World Bank is funding the internal infrastructure of the project and IREDA has set up the Payment Security Fund. Delhi Metro is the institutional Customer for the project taking 24% of the power.
