“Half the electricity for households in Melle from renewable sources of energy, and all produced locally!” This slogan was hard for many people to believe in 2001, since it seemed almost impossible to cover the electricity needs of nearly 25,000 people from local sources. At that time, bioconstruct GmbH put its ambitious project, with a total of six wind power plants, a biogas plant and a photovoltaic installation, into the focus of public attention with a great deal of élan and pioneering spirit, then developed and completed the project. The local residents were so delighted that a total of more than 150 limited partners could be attracted to the operating companies, which are still being managed by Mr. Borgmeyer. Everyone talks about civic involvement – bioconstruct put this successfully into practice fifteen years ago!
The largest wind farm developed by bioconstruct and its affiliate EEG Energie Expertise GmbH is located in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. After years of development and planning work, a total of seventeen NORDEX wind turbines were set up in 2004.
