Government's mega power policy opens up to wind

India's Mega Power Project (MPP) Policy -- aimed at pushing power station projects of more than 500 MW -- has been extended to include wind power as a potential beneficiary. Wind developers are unlikely to take up the option, however. "With the hiked duty on imports, we cannot consider larger wind projects as required by the MPP," says Bikramaditya Raha of Vestas RRB. "Besides, land is difficult to get. Now we require old turbines to be replaced by higher capacity. However, for that we need the import duty to be removed. People will go for smaller machines until then."
