The Government of India has a target of increasing power generated from renewable energy sources to 175 GW by 2022.[5] The National Solar Mission (NSM) has a target of achieving 100GW of grid-connected power generation from solar energy by 2022.[6] India originally had a target of 20GW by 2022; this target was achieved with four years to go. Following this the Narendra Modi government increased the target to 100GW.[7]

The Chief Minister of Gujarat approved the Dholera Solar Park in April 2018.[8]

Auctions have been held in 2020.[9] An excess response of 600 MW was seen.[10] The discovered tariff was between 2.78 (3.7¢ US) and 2.81 (3.7¢ US) per unit. Five companies were allotted 100-200MW each. However following lower tariffs of 1.99 (2.6¢ US) per unit during subsequent auctions, the original contracts were cancelled and new tenders were placed.[9] In 2018 and 2019 similar cancellations in Gujarat had taken place.[11] These cancelled contracts in Gujarat have resulted Uttar Pradesh also cancelling bids of a 500W solar auction.[12]
