The energy policy of the Government of India aims to ensure adequate energy supplies at minimal cost, achieving self-sufficiency in energy supplies and protecting the environment from the adverse impact of using energy resources in an injudicious manner. To achieve its goals, the Indian Government invited the support of the private sectors as before for the development and exploitation of environmentally friendly new and renewable sources of energy. This paper proposes one such technology of generating electricity from municipal solid waste (MSW), to be implemented in Tamilnadu State. To do so, a complete feasibility survey has been conducted with a probable developer and the benefits of this project are compared with the existing wind farm project to attract more investors in the future.
