First Slovak wind farm under construction

The construction of Slovakia's first wind farm is under way in Cerová na Záhorí in western Slovakia, one of the areas with the strongest winds in the country, according to the daily SME.

The four 78-metre-high wind turbines with 44-metre blades are expected to produce enough electricity for a village of over 2,000 inhabitants.

The project is being partially funded by the European PHARE fund to the tune of €1.8 million and €525,000 from state funds. The wind farm is expected to return the full investment over its 25-year lifetime.
