Wind Projects Exit Gujarat As Leasing Land Gets Tougher



Gujarat appears to be losing its status as the favorite destination of wind energy developers. Most winners of the latest wind auction by the Solar Energy Corporation of India, nodal agency that offers renewable energy projects, have decided to set up projects outside Gujarat because of land issues that have arisen lately, according to several people aware of the matter.

Gujarat was favored for wind projects because it has many sites, especially in the Kutch area, where wind speeds are very high. However, over several months, the state has gone slow on leasing land to projects auctioned by central agencies.
