The seeds of Suzlon were sown by Mr. Tulsi Tanti’s venture into the textile industry. Faced with soaring power costs and the infrequent availability of power, he looked to wind energy as an alternative. Beginning with a wind farm project in the Indian state of Gujarat in 1995, with a capacity of just 3 MW - he set forth to acquire the basic technology and varied expertise to set up Suzlon Energy Limited - India’s first home-grown wind technology company.
