The Centre is mooting directly paying the feed-in tariff to wind energy suppliers and later deducting the equivalent from the allocation to the State Government concerned, Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah said on Wednesday.

Inaugurating the three-day ‘Wind Power India 2012’ hosted by the Indian Wind Turbine Manufacturers’ Association (IWTMA) and the World Institute of Sustainable Energy (WISE), Dr. Abdullah said that the drastic step was being considered to save the industry in States where the suppliers were hit by delays in realising the tariff from the government.
