Project Description

The Small Scale Indian Wind Projects consist of six turbines, each with a capacity between 225 kilowatts and 750 kilowatts, which collectively produce about 5,800 megawatts of electricity each year. In addition to providing renewable electricity, Carbonfund.org supports the Small Scale Indian Wind Projects because they support local communities and are a leading example of how wind energy can significantly contribute to India’s increasing energy demands. Furthermore, these projects allow for the development of local infrastructure and promotes the decentralization of India’s renewable energy solutions.
