India was one of the early entrants to wind energy in Asia. Today, roughly 18% of the country’s over 32000 wind turbines are older than 15 years. Most of such older turbines are located within some of the best wind resource zones in the country. This presents a lucrative opportunity to replace obsolete and underperforming wind turbines with modern ones resulting in higher power generation and returns.
For instance, the district of Satara in Maharashtra state has close to 300 turbines aged more than 15 years aggregating to almost 200MW of installed capacity. Replacing them with modern turbines can increase the capacity by three to four times.
