“Allow wind energy project promoters to use banked energy”

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: The Indian Wind Power Association has appealed to the State government to direct the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board to allow promoters of wind energy projects to utilise their banked energy.

In a statement, K. Kasthoorirangaian, vice-chairman of the association, said such a move would not only add to the credibility of the TNEB and the government but would also help to attract fresh investments during 2009-2010 to increase the power generation capacity through windmills.

With no major conventional power projects expected to become operational in the next few years, the only saviour could be the wind energy that had a very short gestation period. The return of banked wind energy would also be in compliance with the orders of the Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission.
