India has a vast solar energy potential. About 5,000 trillion kWh/year of energy is incident over India’s land area with most parts receiving 4-7 kWh per sq. m per day  (JNNSM document). India has a National Solar mission which is part of the eight climate change missions of India. The mission targets achieving grid parity by 2022 and parity with coal based thermal power by 2030 depending on technological developments and global deployment.
