The wind farm is situated north east of the village Raftsjöhöjden, a few kilometers from Hammerdal in Strömsund municipality, Jämtland County.

The wind farm consists of three sub-projects with separate environmental permits; Gåxsjö-Raftsjöhöjden, Raftsjöhöjden and Ollebacken part two. The three subprojects will be built and operated as one, which gives several synergies such as shared access roads and shared grid connection at the nearby Ollebacken substation. The Ollebacken substation is owned and operated by local grid utility Jämtkraft. From Ollebacken runs Jämtkraft's 130 kV line to Kattstrupeforsen where it connects to SVK's main grid. A local office will be build nearby site.

Raftsjöhöjden wind farm is located about 10 kilometers from Munkflohögen and Åskälen wind farms, commisioned during 2019 and 2020.
