Community Impact

Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value for the communities in which it operates. Alta Farms Wind Farm aims to have a positive, long-term impact on the local economy. It created over 275 new jobs during construction and will employ 12 – 15 full-time permanent jobs, plus improved roads throughout Dewitt County. The project represents a total investment of approximately $345 million. 

Enel  sponsored education initiatives as well as COVID-19 relief projects with local partners, including The Vault Community Center, Clinton Education Association and Clinton Community Educational Foundation. Enel will continue support local education initiatives with Clinton USD #15, providing STEM resources and renewable energy education programs to the local community. Additionally, the site donated $15,225 in toys, basic necessities and cash to several local community programs.

Digital Initiatives

In building wind farms, we deploy innovative tools and techniques, such as construction machinery equipped with active safety systems, smart tracking, advanced digital platforms and tablet software solutions to monitor and remotely support site activities, as well as plant commissioning. These processes and tools will enable swifter, more accurate and reliable data collection, thereby improving the quality of construction and facilitating communication between on-site and off-site teams. Smart glasses, 360-degree cameras and drones are used to perform virtual site visits, safety inspections and gather more information about the site.
