Located in the region of the same name in Uruguay, Florida 1 was Akuo Energy’s first wind farm to be brought into operation, beginning generation in July 2014. Complemented by Florida 2, an extension of Florida 1 with identical capacity that was put into production in August 2016, it is one of the most powerful wind farms in the country: the two projects have a total of 100MW of installed capacity, with production ratios of over 40%. The green electricity generated by these two plants is sufficient to supply the region twice over.

Alongside the development of this project, teams from Akuo Uruguay have been involved in the rehabilitation of Florida’s School 74, located on the site of the wind farm. This 25-pupil school was in a very dilapidated state, but has now been entirely renovated and students can now observe the turbines and take part in their own way in the virtual circle of sustainable development.
