Wind farms of Enefit Green, the renewable energy arm of the Estonian state owned energy group Eesti Energia, produced more electric energy in the first 11 months of 2017 than during the whole of 2016.

The output of the four wind farms of Enefit Green in the first 11 months of 2017 amounted to 190 gigawatt-hours, compared with 185.5 gigawatt-hours generated in the full year 2016.

190 gigawatt-hours equals the annual consumption of 76,000 average households, Enefit said.

The CEO of Enefit Green, Aavo Karmas, pointed out that the increase this year has been mainly a result of better dependability of wind turbines, as winds have been only a little bit stronger than in 2016.

According to an estimate by the transmission system operator Elering, in 2017, the amount of wind energy generated in Estonia eligible for the green energy subsidy will not exceed 600 gigawatt-hours, the maximum amount on which the subsidy can be paid.
