Wind Power Facilities in India

India mainly relies on fossil fuels like coal for its power generation. Experts have reported that the fossil fuel resources in India will get exhausted in another 100 years or so.Therefore the government of our country started looking at alternate sources of power such as wind and solar energy.

Generation of wind power was initiated in 1990's and from then on it has witnessed considerable development. The growth of wind power generation in our country is so drastic that within a short period of time India ranks fifth in terms of wind power capacity.

Among all the states, Tamil Nadu ranks number one with generating capacity of around 6007 MW which is nearly 50 percent of total capacity generated through wind plants in India.

Government has taken all possible efforts in increasing the number of wind power plants in our country so as to ensure that there will be enough power generation for the future generations to come.

In Tamil Nadu, wind power facilities are located at Cape Comorim, Kayathar, Muppandal, Perungudi, Chennai and in few other places too.
