Wind energy: Inactive projects may lose permits

 Speaking at the inauguration of the ‘International conference and trade show on renewable energy’ organised  by the Consortium of Electronic Industries of Karnataka (CLIK) on Thursday, Eshwarappa said that permission had been given to units to generate 9,000 mw of power but only 10% of the capacity has been generated. “The units get permission to carry on work but do not carry out any production of energy after that. All such permits will be cancelled,” he said.

 The State’s power generation capacity is only 7,000 mw against a demand of 10,000 mw, he added. Various steps are being taken to increase the energy capacity in the state including signing of MoUs with various other states. Hubli-Dharwad and Mysore cities will  be declared as solar cities, he added.
