Solar power in Thailand was targeted to reach 55 MW by 2011, 95 MW by 2016, and 500 MW by 2022, but applications for over 4000 MW of proposed projects had been submitted by October 2010, although a year later only 16 MW had been completed.[2]

The 73 MW Lopburi Solar Farm was completed in December 2011.[3]

German solar energy company Conergy signed a contract with Thailand’s Siam Solar Energy to construct three solar plants of 10.5 megawatts each in addition to existing two solar plants that are already being constructed since autumn 2012.[4]

In 2013 installed photovoltaic capacity nearly doubled and reached 704 megawatts by the end of the year.[5]
