Wind farm Grafenschlag in operation
02/2022 - Back to overview
Clean and regional electricity from the Waldviertel region
The year 2021 had one more success message to report before it was over: the W.E.B wind farm in Grafenschlag was connected to the grid and generated its first kilowatt hour of electricity before the turn of the year. Once the four wind power plants had mastered their test run, they were officially put into operation in late January. The new wind farm will generate sustainable power for about 16,500 people, saving more than 14,000 tons of CO2 per year – which corresponds to the CO2 emissions of almost 6,000 cars.
W.E.B and Grafenschlag: protecting our climate together
The municipality of Grafenschlag has had wind power plants turning in its backyard since 1997. 25 years later, the new wind farm lays the groundwork for a sustainable future in the Waldviertel region. Construction work began in September 2020. About a year later, the first turbines were set up at the wind farm. In December 2021, all wind power plants were completed and ready to be successfully connected to the grid.
The last few years have shown how important the project is to the region. Waldviertel is particularly affected by global warming. The realization of this project enables W.E.B and Grafenschlag to play a vital role in combatting the climate crisis – an important sign for the quality of living in the region and future generations.
