World - Europe's biggest wind energy park inaugurated in Portugal

Lisbon, Nov 27 (DPA) Portugal's Economy Minister Manuel Pinho Wednesday inaugurated what was described as Europe's biggest wind energy park in the northern region of Viana do Castelo.

The Alto Minho I park began generating energy already a year ago, gradually increasing its production to the full potential Wednesday.

The 120 turbines divided between five sub-stations will produce 530 gigawatts annually or one percent of Portugal's energy.

The park, which cost 400 million euros ($520 million), was expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 370,000 tonnes annually.

Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Search for your Bailout
