Legal framework for information and engagement measures


Industrial commitments: For public tenders for wind farm development, the Autonomous Communities (provinces) require a number of industrial commitments, proportional to the MW awarded.

Agreements with municipalities: Once the wind farm is awarded, the developers also sign agreements with the councils of the municipalities where the wind farm is placed, around € 2,000 / MW / year.

Taxes/Municipal taxes: There are additional duties taxes for construction; a single payment of around 4% of the total investment budget.

Agreements with owners: The leasing of land must be agreed for the occupation of roads, platforms, substation and the flight of the blades.
