In 2017, owners decided to install ATB Riva Calzoni's ATB 500, a 500 kW wind turbine manifactured by ATB Riva Calzoni to produce renewable energy to be sold to the network and support the activities of the sport association.

The ATB 500.54, fabbricated in Artogne e completed in Roncadelle, is a variable pitch controlled wind turbine with a 54 m rotor and a 50 m hub height. Installation works were completed in three days, were handled by Spectrum Energy Systems Ltd under the supervision of ATB Riva Calzoni engineers.
