Suzlon Energy has taken pole position for installed capacity in India once again this year with 73 MW. It installed 39.1 MW in Tamil Nadu, 3.75 MW in Gujarat, and 30.15 MW in Rajasthan. In Maharashtra, where Suzlon installed most last year, there was no activity owing to the state's energy policy vacuum. The company expects Karnataka to be the next wind power hub. According to the company's Girish Tanti, installations in the state are expected after June, once a decision on policy and power purchase agreements (PPA) is announced. "Karnataka has the potential of adding up to 100 MW in the next year alone," he says.
