The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy,
. . . has announced plans to add up to
. . . 17 GW of solar power capacity every year till 2022.

The government has also given ‘must run’ status to wind and solar power projects,
. . . which means that utilities will have to acquire electricity from these projects ,
. . . even if demand falls.
In order to match the falling demand,
. . . the utilities must first shutdown thermal power projects, and
. . . make savings on coal, and
. . . greenhouse gas emissions.
