A brighter future
Certification | VCS
Across India, wind farms introduce clean energy to the grid which would otherwise be generated by coal-fired power stations. Wind power is clean in two ways: it produces no emissions and also avoids the local air pollutants associated with fossil fuels. Electricity availability in the regions have been improved, reducing the occurrence of blackouts across the area.
The projects support national energy security and strengthen rural electrification coverage. In constructing the turbines new roads were built, improving accessibility for locals. The boost in local employment by people engaged as engineers, maintenance technicians, 24-hour on-site operators and security guards also boosts local economies and village services.
The projects meet the following Sustainable Development Goals
- Project Type: Renewable Energy
- Location: India
- Emissions prevention
- Energy security
- Local employment
- Community health & education
The numbers stack up
5000More than 5000 local people benefiting from job opportunities
800,000Over 800,000 tonnes of carbon emissions avoided every 10 years
Scenes from the project
A breath of fresh air
The turbines power local water wells, helping farmers irrigate their crops. In an area that hasn’t seen rain in a year, the soil is bursting with life.
