The company will invest 3,900 crore in this project, which will produce up to 600 MW. The second project will be spread across 1,800 acres in Ballari, Dharwad, Gadag, and Davangere districts, with the company investing 4,900 crore in it. The power plant will generate up to 800 MW captive wind power, as pe the state government.

The investments will be a boost to the southern state, which is struggling for funds to undertake any development projects.
