The area around the wind farm is characterised by very good
and stable wind conditions, and the estimated annual output is about 8GW. Wind
power has a history at Røyrmyra As far back as the 1800’s, wind power was
employed in the agricultural sector at Jæren, and towards the end of the
century, there were 500 windmills in Rogaland. One of them was located at
Røyrmyra, as you can see from the picture.
