The Solar Energy Corporation C of India (SECI), a PSU that tha promotes renewable energy, w will be coming up with three mo more rounds of bids for wind energy ene farms, each offering 1,500 MW MW. Domestic equipment manufacturing manufact firms, smarting from layoffs, layo are likely to benefit from the a additional 4,500 MW.
