Sweden to build Europe's largest wind farm

Once constructed the wind farm will produce between 8 to 12 terawatt hours per year and would alone meet Swedenâ€™s national wind power target to reach 10 terawatt hours by 2015. The wind farm is expected to cost about 55 billion Swedish Kronor (around $6.9 billion or â‚¬4.5 billion) to construct.
The Swedish right-wing government recently announced that they will reverse a nearly 30-year-old ban on building nuclear power plants. Its madness when we can get cheap, clean renewable energy and at the same time create thousands of new jobs from wind farms like this one.
