The 45MW project features 18 wind turbine generators, with each having a rated capacity of 2.5MW.

The project, which has been registered as a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project with UNFCCC, is estimated to earn 1.6 million carbon credits during its operations phase.

RPower chief executive officer J P Chalasani told PTI: "We are committed to increasing our clean and green footprint by adding more renewable power to our portfolio and also by using advanced technologies for all our capacities to reduce carbon emissions."

Power output from the wind facility will be procured by Reliance Infrastructure to distribute power to Mumbai in compliance with regulated tariff structure of Maharashtra.

With this project, Reliance Power has increased its renewable power capacity by more than two-fold, having launched a 40MW solar PV project in Rajasthan.
