The Gujarat Energy Development Agency (GEDA), Director J M Acharya explained that private companies had installed their WTGs (wind turbine generators) on wind farms mainly located in the coastal districts of Jamnagar, Kutch, Rajkot and Bhavnagar,
Jamnagar has reported highest wind power generation till now (311.37 MW), second is Kutch (190.55 MW), Rajkot third (53.19 MW) , followed by Bhavnagar (13.20 MW).
As the wind electricity generation reaches 1,192 MW by this year end, there would be a total investment of over Rs 5,300 crore in this sector, he said.
The electricity generated from the WTGs will be metered on a monthly basis, jointly by GEDA and GETCO at the sending sub-station of 66 KV or above located at wind farm site. Under the new policy, the supervision charges being paid to GETCO at 15 per cent of the cost of power evacuation has been reduced to 7.5 per cent.
