The project is the largest wind project in the company’s portfolio and will generate 290 million units of clean energy and help mitigate 2,11,922 tonnes of carbon emissions annually. The company claims that 7,25,760 homes will get access to clean green energy, replacing the need to source carbon based energy generation.
Mr. Vineet Mittal, Vice Chairman, Welspun Renewables said, “This project is a testimony of our aggressive approach to the renewable energy business and our wind business in particular. Our project site in Pratapgarh is one of the most suitable sites in the country for wind energy. Like most of our solar and wind projects, this will also be among the highest generating power plants in India.” He continues, “I would like to thank the Rajasthan government for their strong support in helping us make this project a reality. We are committed to powering a clean and a green India and this project takes us one step closer to our vision”
Welspun Renewables claims that they have commissioned approximately 700 MW (DC) capacity of clean energy projects across the country to date. In line with the government’s renewable energy initiatives, the company states that they are well on target to commission 1 GW of solar and wind power projects by the end of this financial year.
