    “With several thousand villages still not connected with the national grid…” – This suggests that the villages should or eventually would become connected to the national grid. I don’t think that is the best aspiration to have. The fundamental nature of modern power grids seems to be a network of dependance more than one of energy. There is a limit to the needed redundancy of a complex system and a point where interconnection becomes more of a drain than a benefit. The only benefit of complete interconnection is to the great corporate supplier. But it is great to hear about distributed power generation, this is very much about freedom and independence. Excellent article.

    It’s good to see the Tata group thinking about entering the micro wind segment. This is a great victory for several small and medium renewable energy service providers such as my firm in India trying to define and create the market for micro wind turbines. The challenge in providing cost-effective wind energy solution to rural India , particularly those villages/areas that are off-grid is enormous. Micro wind turbines can deliver energy only in those locations where the annual average wind speed is adequate to churn the turbine. In order to keep the cost low, the micro turbines may be either roof mounted or mounted on 12-15 meter hub height on a mast. None in India, including CWET or any other Govt agency provides reliable data on annual average wind speed at 10m/15m hub height.. we need a national database on this before we aspire providing wind power to off grid villages or places in India with poor availability of power. There are over 350 micro wind turbine manufacturers in the world ( there are over 1000 models of turbines with capacity rating as low as 100W, much smaller than Tata’s 2KW, available in India for as low as Rs 8000, though China made !! Many of the European and American turbines have been operating for more than 10 years ! Some of these micro turbines are super efficient, perhaps far more efficient than what Tata would ever make, but then the total installed capacity of micro turbines is just about a few hundred mega watts, world wide in all these 20 + years of evolution of micro turbines.. . Clearly, the challenge is not about designing or manufacturing micro wind turbines, it’s about how to operationalize a nationwide plan of low cost energy production. Hope Tata takes a different approach than rest of the manufacturers in the world.

    I have developed a keen interest in this entire area. I find it very interesting how many people are so passionate about alternative and green energy sources.

    I have recently posted my thoughts about this here:

    The Basics of Homemade Electricity

    I hope you like it. Let me know.

    Thanks,

    Electricity or energy is one of the most important needs of human. Sad to say but this is getting more expensive and some countries are experiencing scarcity on this resources. one best way is to have a homemade electricity in which you use the nature in getting your own electricity. One way is from sunlight by using solar panels. This will give you electricity as well as wind generators or wind mills.

    Excellent project of wind-turbine……..! which will help in INDIA due major problem from Load sheding….
    I’m very much interested to install wind turbine, location at NASIK, Maharashtra, INDIA for agriculture purpose only (i.e electricity for agriculture) , hence due to lack of electrical energy (power) in our area (MSEB).
    So plz let me know the cost of wind turbine with the capacity-wise and also installation and other cost. And also the maintance cost (expenditure per year). with information for wind turbine.
    Plz reply.

      Hi Rahul,
      Micro wind turbine powered water pumping solution has just been launched in India. There is one at Vijayawada,AP delivering about 60,000 liters of water/day from a depth of about 200 feet. This is a DC-DC system, the pump being a DC submersible pump .
      Feel free to call or mail me at raghu@ehandsenergy.in or at ehands@gmail.com for more details, if you wish to.

      Hi Vinay,

      Most part of the Uttarakhand has good wind, fit for running the micro wind turbines. Several of our micro wind turbines are running in this region; including one at Maa Naina Devi mandi, Nainital . There’s another at Binsar, Almora, Please visit http://www.ehandsenergy.in for more details. We have over 25 small/micro turbines running across several parts of India, most of these are wind+solar hybrid system. These are extremely affordable, starting with just about Rs1.5lacs !

    Hi,

    I would like to know if places like Pune, Lonawala etc have potentials for wind power generation. I tried on Google for wind speed data in these areas but in vain.

    Does anybody have wind speed datas for these region.?

    Many Thanks,
