The project consists of 30 wind turbine generators (WTGs) with a capacity of 3.0 MW each. The project's WTGs will be installed in the Nongwang sub-district of Thepharak district in Nakhonratchasima province, Thailand, and the electricity generated will be fed into the Thai power grid. The project activity will replace an equivalent amount of electricity that would otherwise have been generated by a fossil fuel dominated power grid.

The electricity generated by the project is exported to the Thailand National grid. The project activity will therefore displace an equivalent amount of electricity which would have otherwise been generated by fossil fuel dominant electricity grid. Since wind power has produces zero carbon emissions, the power generated will prevent the anthropogenic gas emissions generated by the dominant fossil fuel based thermal power stations comprising coal, natural gas, diesel, and bunker oil. The estimation of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reductions by this project is limited to carbon dioxide (CO2) only. Thus the project activity leads to an emission reduction of 148,089 t CO2 per year or 1,480,890 t CO2 for the chosen crediting period of 10 years.
