Solar industries in India are fast developing. On 30 October 2018 India reach the capacity of 26 gigawatt. The country expanded the solar generation up to 8 times from 2014 to 2018. The governments target was 20 gigawatt till 2022 but they achieve the target 4 years earlier. Solar energy usage have been boosted in India since 2015. Many rural areas have been benefited with solar cookers and also solar street lights have been installed around 46555 in the end of 2015. There is no doubt India is the Global leader in solar power.
India receives a total of 300 clear sunny days. The calculation of solar energy in India's land area is about five thousand trillion per year. Also the government is investing in Indian solar startups and Solar rooftop industries.
In India total 3744 megawatt of solar capacity have been installed when calculated in March 2015. After a year the figures were doubled, 6763 megawatt solar have been installed till March 2016. And the figures went on doubling. And the figures went on doubling. In Marshmallow 17 numbers were 12289 megawatt and there's no surprise that India completed its target of 20 gigawatt 4 years earlier.
If we talk State wise Karnataka is the top 16 state in India with about 5000 megawatt installation calculated at the end of 2017. While telangana's capacity is 3400 megawatt.
Here are the solar stats of Indian States at the end of 2017:

Some solar projects of India
1. Kurnool ultra mega solar Park, Andhra Pradesh with a total area of 5932.32 acres.
2. Kamuthi solar power project, Tamilnadu with a capacity of 648 megawatt of solar energy.
3. Bhadla solar Park, Rajasthan with the capacity of 2255 megawatt.
4. Chananka solar Park, Gujarat with a land area of 5384 acres.
5. Dhirubhai Ambani solar Park, Rajasthan weather capacity of 40 megawatts.

Thus India is rising and booming in field of solar energy and there are many reasons for this like policies and initiatives by Government, solar startups and the solar projects that is aiming to power cities.
