      Tamil Nadu was the second-highest generator of electricity from wind energy power projects, as it generated 15,703 million units of electricity, in the same period.

      The government has taken several measures to promote wind energy, like the declaration of trajectory for wind renewable purchase obligation - Wind RPO - up to 2030.

      The government has also announced concessional customs duty exemption on specific components required to manufacture electric wind generators.
