This includes the full amortization of the entire system within 20 years. Government subsidies, CO2 certificates or other benefits are not considered yet.
In comparison, the cost of power generation with new fossil-fueled power plants are today at about 7 cents per kWh. This corresponds to a cost increase of about 35% compared to 2009/2010.

The current market offers attractive conditions for sustainable investments. A commitment to renewable energy includes not only an investment in the long-term production of green energy with increasing rates of return, but also in purchasing power conserving property. The current phase of consolidation and the disposability of visaVento of wind farms of the latest generation in locations with good wind conditions offer attractive opportunities to successfully bet on the winners of tomorrow.
