The Lakshadweep Energy Development Agency (LEDA) sought the support of WISE to explore the possibility of installing wind turbines on its three islands, namely Kadmat, Kalpeni and Minicoy. The island’s electricity department generates diesel-based power supplemented by small solar PV plants and provides round-the-clock electricity to all its consumers.

WISE visited the islands and undertook detailed site assessment and wind resource mapping to assess the feasibility of wind power projects in the identified island. A DPR was prepared and submitted to LEDA.
