      . Wind
Wind farms are built in geographical areas that are conductive to consistent prevailing winds. For utility-sized applications, many wind turbines are built in close proximity to one another to form a "wind farm." On these wind farms, giant wind turbines harness the kinetic energy in wind to create electricity.

The process of wind-produced electrical generation begins when the force of the wind pushes against the turbines blades, causing them to rotate, creating mechanical energy. The spinning blades, attached to a hub and a low-speed shaft, turn along with the blades. The rotating low-speed shaft is connected to a gearbox that connects to a high-speed shaft on the opposite side of the gearbox. This high-speed shaft connects to an electrical generator that converts the mechanical energy from the rotation of the blades into electrical energy. Spinning between 11 and 20 times per minute, each turbine can generate a maximum 1.5 megawatts of electricity enough to power, on average, more than 500 residential homes.

KREDL is a facilitating agency for implementation of RE sources. The developer develops the project & on commission will connect the capacity to the grid. Through KPTCL thereby energy is distributed to ESCOMs through PPA & also for 3rd party sale through wheeling & banking.
