€ 744,000

invested by local residents

We distributed over 42,000 flyers, invited 300 schoolchildren for a site visit, received more than 3,000 visitors on Company Open Day and we achieved media coverage several times, including some very nice reporting on regional TV, among other efforts. The icing on the cake is that 318 local residents are co-operants of Aspiravi Samen CV. Together, they invested €744,000!

On Company Open Day, we received more than 3,000 visitors at the foot of the wind turbine in Scherpenheuvel-Zichem. We informed them about the construction and operation of the new wind turbines and about wind energy in general. There was also particular interest in the co-operative societies and the way in which local residents can participate.


COMPANY OPEN DAY FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS

Comprehensive and timely information about all aspects of a new project contributes to greater social support for local wind energy projects. At Aspiravi, we are convinced of this. And that approach is bearing fruit!


Dave Bakker and Vincent Merckx give their testimony as local residents of the new wind turbines along the E314 (in the province of Flemish Brabant) about the various times they were kept up to date.

SCHOOL VISIT DAY FOR 12-YEAR-OLDS

Nearly 300 enthusiastic pupils from the sixth-year classes of all primary schools in Scherpenheuvel-Zichem, Bekkevoort and Diest got their first view of one of the new wind turbines. After all, we are building towards a sustainable future for their generation with the production of renewable energy.

The children discovered how the force of the wind is converted into green power, what the advantages of wind energy are and how such a wind turbine is built. Furthermore, everyone had the chance to take a virtual trip inside a windmill and experience for themselves how it feels to stand on the nacelle!

During the construction of our new wind turbines along the E314, we organised a site visit for the municipal and provincial authorities involved, along with the local press. The governor of the province of Flemish Brabant, Lodewijk De Witte, was present, along with others including various delegates and the mayors of Scherpenheuvel-Zichem and Bekkevoort. They all expressed their support for the project and saw various major components of the wind turbines up close. The visit generated a great deal of press attention in various newspapers, on Radio 2 and ROB TV.
