RWE announced the city of Bedburg has connected a wind farm with a capacity of 28.5 MW to the grid. The five wind turbines of the 30-million-euro Bedburg A 44n project have the capacity to generate enough green electricity to meet the needs of 28,000 households.
The turbines complement the existing Konigshovener Hohe wind farm with 21 turbines and increase the electrical output by almost 30 percent. In total, RWE operates with the city of Bedburg turbines with a total capacity of 95 MW on the territory of the city.
“North Rhine-Westphalia, and in particular the Rhenish mining area, is one of the focal points of our growth strategy, where we will invest 4 billion euro gross by the end of the decade,” Katja Wunschel, CEO Onshore Wind and Solar Europe & Australia of RWE Renewables.
The city of Bedburg has 49 percent stake in the Konigshovener Hohe wind farm, while RWE has a 51 percent stake.
