Stella

Cinque Stelle

Three ENERCON E-48 wind turbines and an 800 kWh ENERCON E-53 wind turbine, with a total installed power of 3.2 MW.

The first three turbines came into operation in 2007, the fourth in 2011.

Cinque Stelle was the first wind farm built by FERA in Liguria, within the territory of the municipality where Sandro Pertini, seventh President of the Italian Republic, was born.

The Municipality of Stella forms part of the Mountain Community of Giovo and of the Beigua Regional Nature Park. Thus the Cinque Stelle site is located in an environment of high naturalistic value. The landscape of the site is mostly grassland, surrounded by a forest of mainly pines, holm oaks and chestnut trees. Over wide flat plains are suggestive views of the coast.

In 2007, conjointly with the Municipality of Tocco da Casauria (Pescara), Stella won the PIMBY – “Please In My Back Yard” award for its “Contribution to demonstrating how infrastructure and environmental protection can be reconciled when environmental balance and landscape harmony are taken into special consideration”.

In 2008, again thanks to the FERA wind farm, the Municipality of Stella won the “Io vivo sostenibile – I live sustainable” award, and the prestigious Klimaenergy award for the following motivation: “The municipality has built a wind farm of three wind turbines, each with a capacity of 800 kW. Thanks to its annual production, it actively contributes to compliance with the Kyoto Protocol, and provides a virtuous example of energy sustainability. Additionally, various initiatives before and after construction were undertaken to involve citizens in the decision-making process and in the benefits deriving from the project”.

Along the track leading to the wind farm, FERA has established an educational trail entitled “Le Vie del Vento”, to encourage visitors to discover the territory and wind energy. Its twelve panels are dedicated to wind technology, flora and fauna, including birds, bats and fungi, as well as environmental impact mitigation measures.

Since its entry into service, due to the particular environmental value of the area and the significant rehabilitation work carried out by FERA, Cinque Stelle is constantly visited by school groups, university students, families and tourists.
