Meanwhile, the government has set a target of adding 1,300 MW of solar power by the end of the current XIth Five Year Plan (2007-12).
"We have to add 1,300 MW solar (power) in the next three years...Time is less we have to do it fast," Abdullah said.
The government recently said it has approved setting up of 20,000 MW grid solar power and 2,000 MW off-grid solar power by 2022 under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission.
The mission aims to develop solar technologies for making solar power competitive to conventional grid power and install 20 million square metre solar thermal collective area by 2022.
