Two wind parks could be built in the village of Pribeta in the Komárno district in southern Slovakia. The SWP company is planning to build one of them and the village itself the other, with the help of European Union funds, the SITA newswire reported.

The village wants to apply for a financial contribution when the Economy Ministry announces a call for projects using renewable energy sources. Pribeta mayor Ladislav Gellerthegyi told SITA that the wind park should cost approximately €2,665,513, while the village would invest €265,551 for a period of twenty years. The investment should return after seven years.

SWP plans to begin construction of its wind park in August 2010. By the end of that year, half of the park should start supplying electricity to the power grid. The complete park should be operating in 2011. According to plans SWP submitted for environmental impact assessment, the invested amount is to range from €78 million to €114 million, depending on the number of wind power units and the technology used. The park's installed capacity is to be from 44 to 88 megawatts. It should supply from 90,000 to 160,000 megawatt hours of electric power to the electric power grid.

Mayor Gellerthegyi said the village project should comprise a minimum of eighteen and maximum of twenty-two turbines. Both the municipality and its residents support the project. SITA
