The company Ventureal Slovakia, s.r.o., has announced plans to build a wind park costing between Sk2.5 billion and Sk3.6 billion, with 22 to 31 wind power units, in an area near to the villages of Letničie, Petrova Ves, Šaštín-Stráže, Štefanov and Unín. The park should generate between 60 and 85 megawatts (MW) of electricity. Another company, Enairgy Veterná Energia, s.r.o., has announced plans to erect wind power generators in an area near to the villages of Hradište pod Vrátnou and Osuské.
