Estonian Wind Energy
- There were 126 wind turbines with a total capacity of 269,40MW installed by the end of 2012 in Estonia. See the table of the existing wind turbines and windfarms in Estonia: Wind energy statistics (end of 2012).
- In 2012 the wind turbines produced 448 GWh of energy, which is about 5,5% of the total electricity consumption in Estonia.
- Three wind farms are currently under construction - a three-turbine Ojaküla wind farm (6.9 MW) in Viru-Nigula parish, a two-turbine Tamba wind farm (6 MW) and the three-turbine Mäli wind farm (12 MW), that is in the final stage of the installation. The construction of Tamba and Mäli wind farms are being supported by Environmental Investment Centre and due to that they do not get any support prescribed with Electricity Market Act.
- In 2012 wind energy production received support of 14.1 million euros, representing 22,5% of the total amount of renewable energy support paid by the consumers.
