Representatives of the wind farm Lički Medvjed participated at the two-day exhibition-sale fair Eco Ethno Gacka, which was successfully organized in the main city park in Otočac. The event, which is gaining in popularity every year and has traditionally been held 17 times so far, gathered a large number of exhibitors of autochthonous products from all over Croatia. This diverse and plentiful offer of local products and handicrafts as well as rich program attracted a few thousand visitors.
In order to cool down a bit and refresh at high temperatures, the Lički Medvjed wind farm has provided refreshment for visitors - popular summer drinks: cold Heineken and Gin & Tonic. Many citizens of Otočac and surrounding places took this opportunity to learn more about the Lički Medvjed wind farm project.
