The power plants in India is heavily impacted by the powerful south-westerly monsoon, which begins in May-June, and the lesser North-eastern monsoon, which begins in the winter months. This was discovered when mapping the potential. Wind power production in the nation accounts for between 60 and 70 percent of the total and peaks in the months of April through September, coinciding with the height of the South-West monsoon’s influence.

Size matters when it comes to wind turbines
Blades on wind turbines are typically over 200 feet in length, while turbine towers are often over 300 feet in height, or roughly the same as the Statue of Liberty. Moreover, turbines are becoming more powerful as measured by their nameplate capacity. A 9% increase from 2020 saw an average capacity of 3 MW for new utility-scale wind turbines in 2021.
Facts about wind turbines
India’s largest wind farm, the Jaisalmer wind park, with a capacity of 1,600 megawatts (MW). The solar industries India project is a collection of wind farms in the Jaisalmer area of Rajasthan, India, developed by Suzlon Energy.

Wind potential of the country
Throughout the 1980s, India launched a program to survey the country’s wind potential and set up demonstration projects to show off the technology’s viability.
They built the wind farms for a wide variety of clients, including governmental and private organizations, IPPs, and utilities. CLP India, Rajasthan State Mines & Minerals, and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation are just a few of the companies that have used their services.
