Wind farm's current production
Jokela Wind farm is located in the northern part of Kalajoki, at a distance of about 4 km from the town center. The area of the wind farm is approximately 300 hectares. The closest residential buildings are located approximately 1,5 kilometer distance from the area.
The wind farm has 12 Nordex N117-type turbines, 3 MW each. The turbines are estimated to produce about 90 GWh of electricity per year, which corresponds to the annual electricity consumption of about 18 000 one-bedroom apartments that are not heated by electricity and for example approximately half of the annual total electricity consumption of the city of Kalajoki. The total annual electricity consumption of Finland is approximately 85 TWh (= 85 000 GWh meaning 85 000 000 MWh). The turbines are located in the area 400 – 600 meters apart from each other. The height of the towers is 140 meters and the diameter of the rotors is 117 meters. The construction of the wind farm was started in 2014.
