The Wind Energy project was developed by Vish Wind Infrastructure LLP (“VWIL”), an independent power producer owned by the promoters of Wind World (India) Ltd. The project deploys 63 units of WTGs of Enercon technology , and delivers an annual average of 107 GWh of green electricity to the regional grid.
This project addresses not only the power demand–supply gap in the state of Gujarat, but also assists in sustainable growth, conservation of resources, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. The project contributes to an approximate reduction of 101,234 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year by displacing an equivalent amount of electricity generation at the grid. In the absence of this project, the equivalent amount of electricity would have been generated from conventional power plants based on fossil fuels.
With the implementation of the project, the local communities have been benefited with employment, health, education, improved infrastructure, socio-economic development etc. in the region.
Project impacts and benefits:
- Local employment generation
- Free preventive health care support to the villagers
- Local infrastructure development
