Lauri Baltic Etsa, chairman of the Riigikogu Renewable Energy Support Group, estimates that the EUR 51.5 million received at the auction of Tootsi wind farm land should be used to achieve the Estonian climate goals.
"One way is to guide this money to creating new jobs in Ida-Virumaa and accelerating the development of the region. The Minister of Foreign Trade and information technology has proposed the idea of constructing a hydrogen plant. This could be supported by the funds received, "said the Social Democratic Party Läänemets. As a second variant, the Baltic Sea has visited the Estonian defence forces to buy additional plants, which enables the "release" of new areas in western Estonia to create wind farms. "Western Estonia is a very attractive area for creating wind farms, but due to the constraints of national defence, the development of new parks has been excluded for a long time. Removing these barriers would also bring new wind energy into the air and help us reach our climate targets faster. The construction of wind farms would also bring additional resources to local communities for regional development, "explained the Baltic Sea. The registered immovable of Tootsi wind farm was bought by Eesti Energia in yesterday's auction.
