India’s National Solar Mission was launched in 2010 with the target of just 20GW by the end of 2020. But since there has been heavy activity in this sector since then, the Indian Government now aims to extend the utilization of solar energy upto 100 GW by 2022.

India ranks third in Asia and fourth in the world in terms of solar power production. Currently, the country is only using 38% of its total capacity of renewable energy. Also, the world’s largest solar park would be constructed in Rajasthan.

Some of the country’s biggest solar power plants are located in Rajasthan, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
