The Danish government is now preparing to postpone the completion of two offshore wind mill parks for one year, in order to secure capital to invest in solar cells without increasing the price for customers, writes Ingeniøren, based on a government proposal concerning a new support scheme.

The parks in question are Horns Rev, at 400 MW (MegaWatt) in the North Sea, and the bigger park Kriegers Flak, in the Baltic Sea. The wind mill parks will now start operating in 2018, instead of 2017 as originally planned. Though the inauguration of the parks is being postponed for a year, the government states that the parks will still be fully developed by 2020.
