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.
