pexels-photo-371917.jpegHon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi’s setting the solar energy target to 100 GW by 2022 has given Indian solar industry the leg up it needed, leading to current 13 GW capacity. India has, practically, doubled its solar capacity from 5 GW in 2015 to 10 GW in 2016.  And, the country is estimated to add approximately 8 GW at the end of 2017. The growth trajectory is incredible indeed, and India is on its way to become the third largest solar market!
