Mr. van der Beek owns one windmill on his property. Sensitive to recent decisions to try and group wind mills together from a government level, van der Beek is currently working with other wind mill owners in North Holland to secure a location for a collection of windmills. Until that time, van der Beek will continue to fly his plane and farm his tulips as the windmill powers him and hundreds of other homes.
