Wind Energy:
Zoom in and move around and you will see 100s of acres of wind turbines. So India has 2 of the world's 4 largest wind farms, and the worlds 2nd largest solar plant, and another solar park, that generates as much as the world's largest. India has done really really well in renewable energy and really set an example for the world.

Muppandal wind farm:
2nd largest wind farm in the world. Generating 1500 MW
8°15'46.43"N, 77°32'10.12"E
8°16'19.05"N, 77°38'3.29"E

Suzlon Jaisalmer Wind Farm:
This generates 1064 MW and is the world's 4th largest wind farm
26°55'49.99"N, 70°48'37.01"E

There are several others, ranging from 9 MW to several hundred MWs all over the country.

Do people remember the Enron Power Project - Dahbhol Power Station?
There was so much controversy in the late 80s and 90s due to this.

The station was supposed to give super expensive power. After Enron went bust, it was mothballed for 5 years and then GAIL and NTPC took over and now it generates 1967 MW.
740 MW Naptha
1700 MW LNG

17°33'33.11"N, 73° 9'58.12"E

Go southwest slightly and see the large tanks to store fuel and a fuel jetty to directly get fuel from oil tankers from the sea.

While I know we want to stay away from identifying many military objects in India, this is something cool. On google maps (not earth), at Gwalior, you can see 2 AWACS and more cool- 2 Akash batteries deployed. One each in the 2 pre-prepared air defence sites. One at the eastern end and one at the north western end. Had not seen that before.
