Between 70.3% and 89.5% of 2000 local citizens surveyed by Danish district utility Arke are in favour of the construction of seven, 1.5 MW wind turbines on the harbour walls of Bønnerup Havn, a tiny fishing port in eastern Jutland. The survey supports the positive findings of a series of opinion polls into wind turbine projects conducted in Denmark over the past 15 years. However, it is the first time that the owners of weekend homes in a country seaside area have been surveyed. In Bønnerup 61% were in favour of the harbour project of Nordtank turbines.
