Rajesh Adani, managing director of Adani Power, said “While the reduced combustion of fossil fuels will help conserve precious natural resources, the carbon credit issuance to our project will also encourage other entities to implement similar projects to reduce their own carbon footprint. Additionally, we are confident of expanding our generation capacity to nearly 10,000MW by March 2013."
