Veal farm Mts. Frens-Stijnen

The more than 1550 veal calves are divided into two groups. There is a considerable energy requirement for mixing the feed and all other activities.

Given the positive energy policy of the municipality of Putten, the idea soon arose for a wind turbine of its own in combination with solar panels. Especially the combination works very well. We have wind energy when there is little or no sun. Or the other way around.
That fits perfectly with the ambition to be completely disconnected from the mains. Officially that is of course not allowed, but in terms of consumption and yield it could be almost.

Economically a great step. Why pay for energy every month, when you can just arrange it yourself?
