XY-Wind is a local initiative by farmers in eastern Flevoland near Biddinghuizen. Special about this project is that, from the start, the local community has been closely involved. Most of the residents in the neighbourhood have become members of the Association XY-Wind, from which most of the project is led and financed in own management.
The project is expected to have around 10 to 15 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 30 to 40 MW. Together with other wind energy initiatives in the surrounding areas, this fleshes out the plans of the Province Flevoland and the Municipality of Dronten in the field of wind energy, as formulated in the Regional Plan Wind Energy.
Already at an early stage, the owners chose to engage the knowledge and services of Ventolines to support the activities in the development phase of the project. In the past year, Ventolines has supported the owners among other in the setting up and developing the project structure, which has led to the founding of the association.
