Your Directors have not recommended any dividend (previous year Re.0.50 per share) for financial year 2014-15 on account of loss for the year. Pursuant to loss for the year the company has also not transferred any amount to Reserves.

3. PERFORMANCE

During the year the Total Income of the Company was Rs.1665.21 Lakh as compared to Rs.3136.36 Lakh in the previous year. The Profit before depreciation achieved was Rs.67.30 Lakh (Previous year Rs.1023.15 Lakh). The Profit / (Loss) after Tax registered was (Rs.313.03 Lakh) (Previous year Rs.152.77 Lakh). The company has not transferred any amount to Reserves during the year.

There has been no change in the business of the company during the year as compared to the previous year.

Generation from all its wind power plants in different states have been marginally lower than the previous year except in Theni District and Tirunelveli District in Tamil Nadu wherein the State Utility have not been shutting off the grid to the extent they were resorting to in the previous year on account of state wide imbalance in the grid which has been compounded by Southern grid yet to be integrated in the National grid.

The steep drop in value of realization of power generation has been on account of non granting of open access for sale to third parties by the State Utility in Maharashtra as per their Revised Procedure for Wind Open Access announced effective from 01.04.2014 which was squarely struck down by Hon'ble Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory commission (MERC) vide their order of 20.08.2014 and despite such order the State utility did not issue the open access approval necessitating the Association of Wind Power Generators filing a Contempt Petition which has been finally heard on 23.03.2015 and judgement reserved. Since the order of MERC has not yet been issued so far, the company as a conservative measure has recorded the income from its 18 MW wind farm project at the lower tariff rate applicable for sale to the state utility as the entire gross generation of 308.20 lakh units has been fed into the grid of the state utility. Since the issues involved in the litigation is squarely covered by a direct decision of Hon'ble Appellate Tribunal for Electricity, it is expected that MERC order would be in favour and on receipt of the said order only income can be accounted at a tariff agreed to for sale of power under open access to third parties.

In Andhra Pradesh where the company has a 7.5 MW, wherein on a tariff revision petition filed by State Distribution Licensee APCPDCL the Hon'ble State Electricity Regulatory Commission APERC had issued an interim order fixing that tariff at Rs.1.69 per unit against the normal tariff of Rs.3.37 per unit.

Thereafter APERC had issued their final order on 06.09.2014 retaining the tariff at Rs.3.37 per unit. Consequently the difference in tariff has been accrued and accounted under exceptional items at Rs.380.20 lakh.

However the bifurcation of state of United Andhra Pradesh into AP and Telangana with effect from 02.06.2014 has also created issues on the matter of release of payment of arrears from January 2011 to May 2014 consequent to the tariff rate being sustained by Hon'ble APERC. Though the company has accounted for arrears of income from generation proceeds as exceptional items in F.Y. 2014-15, the payment thereto is still pending.

The company in respect of its 18 MW wind farm in Maharashtra, since sale is to third parties, is availing the renewable Energy Certificates issued as per Central and State Electricity Regulatory Commissions and the said certificates can be sold in the Electricity Exchange at a base price of Rs.1500/- per REC and maximum being Rs.3300/- per REC. However, the off take of REC in the market by the obligated entities predominantly the Distribution Licensees have been negligible during 2014-15 resulting in accumulation of REC which are only accounted on sale. The unsold REC as at 31.03.2015 is about 24398 which at the minimum price of Rs.1500/- per REC would fetch about Rs.365.97 lakh.

Even though the Central Government has been enthusiastic in pronouncing measures and aiming to achieve quantum jump in installation and generation of power from renewable energy projects, unfortunately at State level as well as the utilities and at times the State Electricity Regulatory Commissions have not been keeping pace with the same. On the contrary in some states where the company has its wind farm the pronouncements whether in the form of Regulations or Orders have been adverse to the sustenance of renewable energy projects especially those which have been in operation for many years. In Maharashtra apart from the imbroglio created by the utility for F.Y. 2014-15, MERC had added to the woes by replacing old open Access Regulations with new Open Access Regulations squarely curtailing the non discriminatory open access for sale of power to third parties and thus stifling the existence and growth of renewable energy projects especially wind power. The Association of wind power generators have filed a writ petition in the Hon'ble High Court of Bombay against the new regulations of MERC and it is expected as in the case of any litigation in India, the matter before High Court could be a long drawn out affair.

4. SUBSIDIARY / ASSOCIATE / JOINT VENTURE COMPANIES

Therefore till the Hon'ble High Court disposes off the writ petition, revenue from the 18 MW wind farm from April 2015 onwards would be an uncertainty despite the fact that on account of infirm nature of wind power, the wind power is generated in the normal way and fed into the grid of the state utility.

The removal of accelerated depreciation for wind mills coupled with suspension of generation based incentives had a dampening

effect in new investments in wind energy sector.

3. PERFORMANCE

Duri ng the year the Total Income of the Company was Rs.3182.95 Lakh as compared to Rs.2982.78 Lakh in the previous year. The Profit before depreciation achieved was Rs.1157.53 Lakh (Previous year - Rs.1188.86 Lakh). The Profit after Tax registered was Rs.245.87 Lakh (Previous year Rs.234.89 Lakh).

Generation from all its wind power plants from different states have been higher than the previous year by about 15.8% principally contributed by the benefit of full year generation of 3.6 MW wind power plant in Aranmanaikadu, Theni District, wherein in 2011-12 apart from frequent grid problem of the Tamil Nadu utility, a new transmission line to the substation could be completed by July 2011 i.e. well into the high wind season and of course this year the availability of wind was also on a higher side. Wind pattern is generally cyclic with high and low wind seasons alternating. The value of realization of power generation has also been good except in Andhra Pradesh where the company has a 7.5 MW, wherein on an tariff revision petition filed by State Distribution Licensee APCPDCL the Hon''ble State Regulatory Commission APERC has issued an interim order fixing that tariff at Rs.1.69 per unit against the normal tariff of Rs.3.37 per unit. As some more renewable energy generators have been affected, Appellate Tribunal of Electricity has been approached by few developers praying for setting aside the interim order, directing the Utility to make payment at Rs.3.37 per unit, directing APERC to expedite disposal of the long pending appeal. The company has provided for the difference in tariff for the period for which APCPDCL has paid the value for generation at Rs.1.69 only and the same is reflected as Exceptional Items.

The removal of accelerated depreciation for wind mills coupled with suspension of generation based incentives had a dampening effect in new investments in wind energy sector. The Central Government in Budget 2013- 14 has reintroduced "generation based incentive” for wind energy projects and has allocated Rs.800 crore to the Ministry of Non Renewable Energy for this purpose. However detailed operational guidelines are awaited.

4. SUBSIDIARY COMPANIES
