Wind power in India is another fastest developing industry and wind farms in the country are generating 46,011 million kWh of electricity. Today, India is fourth largest installed wind power capacity in the world and here is the list of wind energy installations in states across India.
Renewable energy in India will double the power capacity in the country and would place India amongst the best renewable energy use countries in the world.
The state of Tamil Nadu has the highest Installed wind capacity by any other state of India. Muppandal windfarm is the largest wind power plant in India with 1500 MW installed capacity.
Maharashtra ranked second in wind power installed capacity and also planning to install wind power project in Satara. As of now Maharashtra has 4,442.05 MW installed capacity in the wind energy sector.
Gujarat ranked third in term of wind renewable energy and a leading state in India for wind power capacity. The state also looking for the possible sites for Offshore wind power plant at coast of Gujarat.
Rajasthan has 4031.99 MW wind power installed, Jaisalmer Wind Park is second largest operational onshore wind farm in India and one of the largest operational wind farms in the world.
