Property owners Anne Marie and Svein Håland invited Norsk Vind Energi into the project in October 2008. The project is located on Håland, in the municipality of Hå, approximately five kilometres’ south-east of the centre of Varhaug. Røyrmyra Wind Farm was granted license by NVE on May 2010 due to, amongst other reasons, the areas excellent wind conditions and limited chances for neighbourly conflicts. The wind farm became operational during the autumn of 2015.

Røyrmyra Wind Farm generates an installed effect of 2.4MW, which equates to the electrical consumption of 400 Norwegian households. The surrounding area of the wind farm is characterised by stable and productive wind conditions, and we expect a yearly production of approximately 8GWh from the wind farms three turbines. Norsk Vind Energi is responsible for operating Røyrmyra Wind Farm.
