The electricity consumption of DONG Energy’s 700,000 residential customers is now covered by clean energy from Danish offshore wind. In turn, the developer is celebrating the milestone by inviting 1,000 Danes on an “offshore wind farm safari.”
The free project tours will take place on leased ferries from Grenaa Harbour to the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm on Saturday, June 17, and from Copenhagen Harbour to The Middelgrunden Offshore Wind Farm on Saturday, June 24.
“Denmark is doing a really good job in terms of green energy because the Danes support it. As the largest producer of green power in Denmark, we’re happy to be part of the transition from black to green energy,” comments Louise Hahn, vice president of business-to-consumer sales at DONG Energy. “In fact, we are responsible for more than half of Denmark’s reduction in CO2 emissions. Once again, we’re giving the Danes the opportunity to get close to the wind turbines and see how they work.”
During the tours, guests will get close to the turbines, as well as have the opportunity to meet employees, says DONG Energy.
“Last year, we invited the Danes offshore to experience green energy, and the guests had a really good experience,” Hahn continues. “All our residential customers are now receiving green power from our Danish wind farms, and once again, we’re giving them the opportunity to get out and see how it works out at sea.”
