Project type: Renewable energy
Standards: CDM, VCS
Located in the state of Tamil Nadu, India, this project consists of two wind farms with a total capacity of 74.25 MW, delivering approximately 100,000 MWh of clean renewable electricity to the southern regional grid each year. The country’s rapid population growth has meant increasing pressure on electricity generating capacity, 70% of which is currently supplied by fossil fuels. Renewable energy projects such as this are vital to support India overcome its energy shortage, while reducing carbon emissions.
