Solberg is currently the only wind farm that Fortum operates in Sweden. With 22 wind turbines, its 76-MW capacity produces renewable electricity to light up a town of about 70,000 households on a yearly basis.
Solberg wind farm is located northwest of Örnsköldsvik, in Västerbotten County, and approximately 30 km south of Åsele, in Västernorrland County.
The wind farm is jointly owned by Energy Infrastructure Partners (EIP) and Fortum, and Fortum is responsible for operating the wind farm.
The local villages around the wind farm receive a wind bonus based on the annual production. The village associations use this annual contribution to develop social and cultural activities locally.
