MNRE to Setup 1000 MW Wind Power Projects

The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy in India is planning to set up 1000 MW of wind power projects. The scheme for awarding 1000 MW grid connected wind power projects is expected to benefit utilities in meeting their non-solar RPO norms. The scheme has a positive impact on the wind energy sector encouraging capacity addition in the sector as well as enabling distribution utilities in states with limited wind potential to honor their non-solar renewable purchase obligation to some extent. The key objective of this scheme is to facilitate wind based power supply from high wind potential states to others.
