Reliance Power commissions 45 mw wind power project in Maharashtra
Reliance Power commissioned its wind power facility of 45 mw in Vashpet, Maharashtra. Built with an investment of Rs 300 crore, the power from this project would be sold to Reliance Infrastructure Limited for distribution to Mumbai in line with regulated tariff structure of Maharashtra. The wind project consists of 18 wind turbine generators (WTGs) having 2.5 mw of rated capacity each. The project is registered as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project with UNFCCC and is expected to earn 1.6 million carbon credits during its operations phase. Reliance power is already operating a 40 mw solar photovoltaic project in Rajasthan and with the commissioning of the 45 mw wind power capacity, its operating renewable capacity has doubled to 85 mw. In addition, the Reliance group already has another 100 mw of wind power capacity. Reliance Power is also executing country’s largest 100 mw solar CSP (concentrated solar power) project at Rajasthan, which would complete by year’s end.
