POLICY FOR REPOWERING OF THE WIND POWER PROJECTS

Ministry of New & Renewable Energy has released the Policy for Repowering of the Wind Power Projects.

Objective:

Objective of the Repowering Policy is to promote optimum utilisation of wind energy resources by creating facilitative framework for repowering.

  • For repowering projects Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) will provide an additional interest rate rebate of 0.25% over and above the interest rate rebates available to the new wind projects being financed by IREDA.
  • All fiscal and financial benefits available to the new wind projects will also be available to the repowering project as per applicable conditions.
  • State will facilitate acquiring additional footprint required for higher capacity turbines.
  • For placing of wind turbines 7D x 5D criteria would be relaxed for micro siting.
