India Bundled Wind

A laborer is seen working at a deisel powered crusher infont of a wind turbine.

 

This is a 17.5 MW wind project, consisting of eighteen wind farm sites in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Karnataka. The eighteen sites have been bundled together for the purposes of carbon finance. The turbines displace electricity from the National Grid, which is dominated by coal and oil fired generation. The Indian electricity grid is dominated by fossil fuel powered generation which makes CO2 emissions per kWh relatively high at approximately 0.9t CO2/kWh.
