India has so far commissioned solar projects with capacity of about 186 MW, of which 40 MW worth of off-grid projects were commissioned in 2011, a senior government official said.
Tarun Kapoor, joint secretary, ministry of new and renewable energy, told this on the sidelines of Inter Solar conference in Mumbai.

India plans to build an initial capacity of 1 GW of solar power by 2013, enough to power close to 1 mm homes. It would then add 3-10 GW by 2017, and hopes to grow that to 20 GW by 2022.
Coal currently accounts for 55 % of India's power generation capacity of 182,344 MW.
