Windpark Zeewolde B.V. is Europe’s largest community owned wind park; a unique collaboration of more than 200 local farmers, residents and entrepreneurs. It will arise in the outskirts of Zeewolde, an area that covers over 300 square kilometers. Over 90% of the inhabitants have united as shareholders. Together they form Europe’s largest farmer / civilian wind collective. With a capacity of 320 MW, Windpark Zeewolde will be the Netherland’s largest onshore wind project as well. The current 220 wind turbines make way for 91 larger, modern ones. Together, the new wind turbines will generate almost three times more energy. From 2020 onwards, Windpark Zeewolde provides clean, green energy for more than a quarter of a million Dutch households.
