The production would equal 40% of the total electricity consumption of the Kittilä and Sodankylä municipalities.

The area has been marked as a wind power area in the draft regional land use plan of Mountain Lapland and in the regional land use plan of Northern Lapland.

During the autumn, the project’s environmental impact assessment will commence, wind measurements will be set in motion and technical pre-planning will continue. If the project proves to be feasible in further investigations and if the necessary permissions are granted, wind power production could start in Kuolavaara-Keulakkopää around 2013.
