wind power is expected to rise in India

 
The Indian government is offering very lucrative financial incentives in the hopes of increasing wind power installations to 5 times current levels. Currently, the average annual added capacity of wind energy has been 2,000 – 3,000MW.
 
India has reinstated the accelerated depreciation tax benefits in the hopes that it will fuel growth in the wind industry. Wind power in India is favoured among the renewable energy resources, and makes up roughly 67% of the mix. Since wind energy is expected to rise significantly as incentives increase, many large developers are making their way to India. GE has announced plans for a wind turbine manufacturing plant with a total investment worth $200 million.
 
According to Wikipedia:
 
There is a growing number of wind energy installations in states across India. By the end of January 2014, the states of India had a cumulative installed capacity of 21264 MW.[14]

Although India was late the wind power game, it has made up for lost time and is expected to rival some of the world’s largest adopters of wind energy.
