Thanks to the presence of the wind farm, the municipality of Tula has been able to expand the services it offers the community and upgrade the quality of its existing services. In the context of education, various initiatives have been implemented to support families in the area, such as programs to reduce school dropout rates, the full reimbursement of expenses incurred in travelling to high schools in neighboring municipalities, as well as study grants and inclusion services for students with disabilities.
From an economic and environmental perspective, the technology is working hand in hand with protecting the local area: the wind farm is a grazing area for sheep and is home to numerous beehives. In addition to generating revenue for the beekeepers, the site provides a space for the protection of bees. This is an important factor not only for ensuring the continuity of honey production, but more importantly, to protect this species, which is being increasingly threatened by climate change and the use of pesticides. Bees play a crucial role in our lives, as they are responsible for around 70% of pollination of all plant species and ensure around 35% of global food production. Enel Green Power is trialing similar projects in other plants around the world, from the United States to Spain and Greece.
