The Fontaine-Macon II wind farm is located in the commune of the same name. It forms an extension to the Fontaine-Macon I project, adding a further 4 turbines. This project contributes to the energy diversification of a region traditionally focused on conventional electricity generation. It also forms part of the regional drive to optimize the use of agricultural land, adding a renewable energy dimension.

In addition, working with local farmers, Akuo Energy has assisted with the creation of new meadows around the project site. Covering more than 6 hectares, these meadows are attractive to birds as they provide food and shelter. At the same time, an action plan is in place to help protect the population of Montagu’s harriers and the breeding sites of black kites.
