Citizens' wind farms
The "citizens' turbine" financed and operated by the inhabitants of the local community and the property owners, is a central component of wind power in Germany. The cooperative wind farm creates identity and generates local value added.
The challenges on the way to your own wind farm are manifold and are being continually toughened through the refinement of statutory requirements such as EEG or KAG [Capital Investment Companies].
The euphoria of getting things moving locally on the one hand, and the know-how and stamina in realising the project on the other - in our experience the two go hand in hand to form a successful model. Citizens and property owners realise the wind farm together with wpd as their partner. Both sides contribute their strengths: wpd its expertise and financial strength, the local partner its local network. In this way, projects can be realised together on beneficial terms.
On request, we can offer joint operation that combines self-determination and safety: operation in your own company with an agreed management concept.
In case that citizens wish to take a share with small amounts or make mid-term investments, a wind savings certificate is the best form of participation. Investors profit from above-average fixed yearly interest rates.
In a cooperation with you, we will develop the best possible concept for your wind farm.
