Góra Barzowicka nr./Darłowo, Sławno poviat, Zachodniopomorskie voivodship, proved to be a location with excellent wind energy resources. This has been confirmed by many years of study using the weather stations installed on site, as well as the actual volumes of electricity generated by the facility.
The development proved to be the catalyst for further professional wind energy generation in Poland.
