Enefit Green is building the most modern renewable energy area in Estonia on a depleted peat deposit in Põhja-Pärnumaa County.
A total of 38 wind turbines will be built near the settlement of Tootsi by the end of 2024, and the company also plans to build a large solar park near the wind farm. The output of the Sopi-Tootsi wind farm covers nearly 8% of all electricity consumed in Estonia.
Every year, the Põhja-Pärnumaa municipality receives direct financial benefits from the wind farm in accordance with the national local benefit model. Under the same act owners of dwellings in the immediate vicinity of the wind farm will also receive support.
In addition, Enefit Green enables electricity consumption with a direct line, ie without a network fee, within a radius of 6 km from the substation and up to 20 megawatts. A new road will also be built together with the wind farm, which will shorten the road to Tallinn for local residents by tens of kilometres.
The Sopi-Tootsi wind farm provides about 680 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity per year, thereby doubling the entire wind energy production in Estonia. In comparison, there are currently a total of 145 wind turbines in Estonia, with a total capacity of approx 320 megawatts and annual production of around 730 gigawatt-hours.
