Switzerland Planning Large Wind Farm in Valley of Light

Switzerland announced in May that it is doing away with nuclear power, by 2034. It is also cutting fossil fuels, of course. So, it’s no surprise that it is following neighbor Germany’s lead and has huge renewable energy plans. It has now announced that it is planning a large wind farm. The wind farm will have 40-60 turbines, more than doubling its total number of wind turbines at the end of 2010 (32). The wind farm will be located in the “Valley of Light” (Val Lumnezia), pictured above. Switzerland, which only produced 37 million kilowatt-hours of wind power at the end of 2010, plans to produce 600 million kilowatt-hours by 2020.
