150 MW Grid Connected Wind Power Based Electricity Generation Project in Gujarat, India
Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)
Wind (150 MW)
Lathedi, Jakhau, Nani Sindhodi, Moti Sindhodi, Chachhi, Sandhan, Budhia, Ranpar, Rapargarh, Sayra, Suthari, Vanku, and Dhutai villages, Kutch region, Gujarat, India
The project is a 150 MW wind farm (100 x 1.5 MW wind turbines).
The project annually exports approximately 348,000 MWh of renewable energy to the Indian grid which has an emissions intensity of 0.9368 tCO2/ MWh.
Sustainability Beyond Carbon
Demand for electricity in Gujarat is growing quickly, with a significant supply – demand gap existing. The project helps to meet Gujarat’s electricity demand while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
It helps improve the local grid’s power characteristics, improving reliability and usability.
The project displaces conventional/ fossil fuel-based electricity generation.
It reduces India’s reliance on foreign sourced fuels and local fossil fuels, and reduces local air pollution.
The project’s direct and indirect benefits help alleviate poverty through employment generation and improved economic activities resulting from a strengthening of the local grid.
The infrastructure in and around the project area has also been improved, including development of the road network. The project leads to economic investment in a developing region which otherwise would not have happened in its absence.
