The Windmills are an important part of the Reservoir Biome in Resident Evil Village. They produce the electricity needed to power the Sluice Gates in the game. Opening the Sluice Gates is what will drain the fishing village and allow you to fight with Moreau. So with all that out of the way find out how to reach the Windmills in RE Village.
How to reach the Windmill in Resident Evil Village
The First Windmill is already working, but it is the second one that has stopped. It can easily be accessed through the Gatehouse. However, when you get there you will find that the crank breaks. As if it would be that easy. What it also means is that you will have to get the crank from the first windmill.
So to make your way to the first windmill you will have to use all the floating debris only. Go in the water and you are very likely to be fish food. Keep going on top of the debris and onto the roofs of houses. Here you will see a huge structure secured with yellow tape. Cut these tapes to drop the structure into the water. Use it to cross the water and into a shack. Inside you will find a ladder. Go up this ladder and push the cart off the roof. Now to your left are a set of bridges you need to cross.

Complete the Reservoir Bridge Puzzle to get to the Windmill in Resident Evil Village
There will be a section in between where you will have to operate a puzzle of bridges. Get to the first blue lever and throw the switch. Quickly make it across the walkway and onto the next stable platform. Here, throw the orange switch and then hit the blue switch on the rickety platform to cross safely. After that, once you’re in the house, you will find three sets of switches. Operate them in the following order.
Now run as fast as you can as the bridges won’t hold for long. Take a right when you come to the junction and keep going. Wait for Moreau to cross and then continue further. Keep going and you will come across another cart you have to push into the water. Later keep following the road until you make it back to the house from where you accessed the bridges. Once you are there drop another cart into the water and cross over into the Windmill.
Operating the Windmills
Enter the windmill room and go all the way around. You will see a lock on the ladder. Shoot it and the ladder will come down. Using the ladder make your way to the top and go over to the crank of the Windmill. Attach the crank that you find there and rotate the platform around. Now, go back to the ladder opening and you will be able to climb to the top of the Windmill. Over here you will be able to find a zipline which goes to the second windmill. Use it to make your way across.
Once you are at the second windmill, use the crank on the platform again just like you did with the first. Now the Sluice gates will have electricity.
