Wind in Maharashtra, India
Located in Maharashtra, India, this wind turbine project converts wind energy into renewable electricity, selling the power generated to the state grid. The project comprises 40 wind turbines, each of 2 MW capacity. Together, they feed into the large NEWNE grid (Northern, Eastern, Western and North-Eastern), saving some 135,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. Importantly, they displace the need for electricity generated by fossil-fuel powered plants, in line with India’s renewable energy goals. The project developer has also invested in local healthcare, raising awareness of the importance of donating blood, and organising blood donation camps in local communities.
