To preserve the affect as little as attainable, Statkraft is planning the wind generators largely on broken and tree-free areas.
“With the Oedelsheim wind farm, we’re creating the idea for our market entry in Germany,” says Claus Urbanke, head of wind & photo voltaic in Germany. “The mission is a crucial step in reaching our Group technique of creating eight,000 megawatts of wind and photo voltaic power worldwide by 2025.”
Statkraft will supply residents of the Wesertal and Uslar communities the chance to take part financially within the wind farm with a citizen wind turbine and a further subordinated mortgage.

This further income for the municipalities can add as much as round 160,000 euros per yr.
