E4G Developing Flagship Project
Energy for Generations has developed a flagship project at the center of one of the best wind resources in the nation. The actual project site was selected through a rigorous process of determining which portion of this wind hotspot would have the least environmental impact. When fully built out, the project’s capacity could exceed 800 megawatts. E4G has garnered local community support. The project has been under development for the past eighteen months and is targeting construction for 2012.
The photo simulation (click the photo or here for larger version) is a representation of the "before and after" view of this project when built. The site is intensely agricultural with few residences and reflects an exceptional degree of compatibility between existing agriculture practices and an operational wind farm.
