Viure del Aire is the first community-owned wind project in Spain
2.35 MW
5800 MWh Renewable Energy
2,600,000 €

Viure del Aire is first community wind project in Spain. The project is located in Pujalt, close to Barcelona. Although the wind turbine does not benefit from any subsidies or a feed-in premium, Som Energia pushed through. The project is financed by Viure de l'Aire del Cel, a cooperative owned by Eolpop. Som Energia provided Viure del Aire with a EUR 1 million loan so that it could get the wind turbine operational. After raising the funds from local citizens, the loan will be paid back. Have a look at the website of Eolpop to learn more about this community-owned wind project.
