Pune, in the State of Maharashtra, India
Wind Based Power Generation By Panama Wind Energy Godawari Private Limited, which is sold to the state grid.
The project activity involves the installation and maintenance of Wind Turbines. The total installed capacity of the project is 80MW; which involves operation of 40 Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs), each with a capacity of 2 MW.
In this process there is no consumption of any fossil fuel and hence the project does not lead to any greenhouse gas emissions or have a negative impact on the environment. The power produced displaces an equivalent amount of power from the grid fed mainly by fossil fuel power plants. The crediting period started in March 2014 and is expected to run for 10 years.
Social and Sustainability Benefits
The project is contributing to sustainable development:
- Generation of employment opportunities during the construction and operation of the project
- The project helps reduce the demand – supply gap in the region
- The project will demonstrate the technology in the region and help encourage other wind power projects.
136,936 tonnes of CO2e per year,
with the total expected GHG emission reductions across the 10 year crediting period, totals at 1,369,360 tonnes of CO2e offset.
£4.60 to offset 1tCO2e.
