Enel Green Power starts construction on 25 Mile Creek wind project

28 Oct 2021

Enel Green Power North America has begun construction on the 250MW 25 Mile Creek wind farm in Ellis County, Oklahoma.

The project will include 60 turbines and is expected to commence operations by the end of next year. Nearly 350 workers will be employed in its construction.

The wind farm will generate more than 1.1 TWh of energy per year, which can power over 100,000 homes. It will also offset more than 676,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.

The economic benefits that the new facility will offer include the provision of US$34m in new local taxes and more than US$56m in payments to landowners during its life cycle.

According to Enel Green Power, the 25 Mile Creek Wind Power Project is its 12th wind farm in Oklahoma. With the new construction, the company's Oklahoma wind portfolio will now exceed U$3bn in investment.

With the addition of the new wind farm, the firm will have more than 1.7GW of operational capacity in Oklahoma.
