ZAGREB (AFP) - Croatia's first wind farm, located on the central Adriatic island of Pag, began generation, the economy ministry said.
The system, worth some 6.5 million euros (8.4 million dollars), cmprises seven windmills, each of which is expected to generate about 15 million kilowatts of electricity per year. Croatia is building its second wind park, which is to be put into service later this year, near the central coastal town of Sibenik. It is also planning to build wind farms on the southern island of Vis and in the central town of Obrovac.
