Tamil Nadu cuts rates of pay for wind

Wind energy producers in southern Tamil Nadu are up in arms over the state government's decision to cut rates of pay for electricity from non conventional resources. The Wind Power Producers Association of Tamil Nadu fears the decision of the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board (TNEB) is detrimental to the growth of wind development and will hit wind turbine manufacturers, which are mainly based in Tamil Nadu. TNEB has also said that no automatic annual increase in the rate will be permitted. Wheeling power over the grid to third party buyers or banking it for future use will not be allowed under the new rules either, says TNEB.
