Carbon credits section

Relocated this section from the article page -- the article doesn't specifically refer to the Tata UMPP but other projects which were granted carbon credits.--Bob Burton 11:41, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

On July 12, 2011, the UN ruled that the project is eligible to earn carbon credits worth $165 million at current prices. Green organisations said the U.N. rules, or methodology, were flawed and "may lead to significant overestimation of emission reductions." Mundra is the second Reliance Power project to be formally registered by the United Nations under its Clean Development Mechanism. As of July 2011, five "high-efficiency" coal power plants were registered under the CDM -- four in India and one in China -- meaning they are all eligible to earn certified emissions reductions (CERs) that they can sell.[1]
