Wind power project in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan by Centaur Mercantile Pvt. Ltd.
The main purpose of the project activity is to generate energy through sustainable means using wind power resources, to utilize the generated output for supply to Ajmer Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited (AVVNL) and to contribute to climate change mitigation efforts.
Centaur Mercantile Private Limited (CMPL), have installed 8.4 MW (4 units of 2.1 MW Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) of Suzlon make) wind power project at Sonu site in Jaisalmer district of Rajasthan. The project utilizes wind energy for generating electricity which otherwise would have been generated through alternate fuels (most likely - fossil fuel) based power plants, contributing to reduction in specific emissions (emissions of pollutant/unit of energy generated) including GHG emissions. Being a renewable resource, using wind energy to generate electricity contributes to resource conservation. The project proponent developed this project keeping in consideration of the funding available under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This project activity is a qualified CDM project as it reduces the power consumption from the electricity grid thereby helping in significant reduction of GHG emissions. The project activity is also responsible for sustainable economic growth and conservation of the environment through use of wind as a renewable source.
