Viure Air Cel project involves the installation of a wind turbine of 2.7 MW jointly held by citizens who voluntarily supply the money needed to realize the project. In order to do this, in early 2010 Eolpop SL was constituted, which will be responsible for the promotion and realization of the project and responsible for issuing participatory accounts do wind turbine shared ownership possible. Since the summer of 2014 Som Energia has joined the project to finance 50% of it with kWh Generation system. The place chosen for its location is within the municipality of Pujalt (Anoia in the province of Barcelona), for the good wind conditions, access and connection to the medium voltage network. The turbine is the ECO-122 model of Alstom, a wind machine specially designed for low wind areas.
