Vento di Zeri

Five 2 MW VESTAS V90 wind turbines, with a total installed power of 10 MW.

Vento di Zeri is the second wind farm built by FERA in Tuscany, after the Santa Luce Wind Farm.

The wind farm is located on Mount Colombo, at a height of between 1,100 and 1,300 metres. Falling within the territory of the Municipality of Zeri, in Lunigiana, on the border with the Province of Parma, the vast area that accommodates the wind farm is characterized by beech woods, chestnut groves and variously sized mountain meadows and pastures. The local economy is primarily dedicated to sheep farming, but is also open to tourism, due to the existence of several places of natural beauty and the ski area of Zum Zeri at the Passo Dei Due Santi – Two Saints Pass. Near to the wind farm, on the road leading to the Two Saints Pass, is Formentara, a collection of sixteenth-century masonry shepherd huts, now derelict and unsafe.
