Utility Energieversorgung-Schwaben (EVS) of Stuttgart has announced plans to install two more wind turbines on the Schwäbischen Alb, to be on line in 1996. The new units, 500 or 600 kW machines, will join two existing turbines, an 80 kW and a 55 kW, installed by EVS in 1989 and 1990. They will generate electricity for DEM 0.25/kWh says the utility. According to EVS, the expansion of the wind station near Heroldstatt will heighten the attraction of the region for tourists. "Already the parish has registered an impressive number of visitors coming to look at the technology," it says. EVS chairman Wilfried Steuer boasts the location will become the largest wind station in Baden-Wuerttemberg and Heroldstatt a "Schwäbischen Mecca" for wind.
