It will fund the project with money raised mainly by small investors, although some financial support is being provided by the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy. Comprising ten, 2 MW turbines, the project's estimated cost is ´4.7 billion ($39.1 million). Investors were to be invited last month to stump up ´90 million ($748) in an initial public offering.
