Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value and productivity for the Throckmorton County community. The project created over 350 construction jobs during the building of the plant and 18 - 20 permanent full-time positions for its Operations & Maintenance (O&M) strengthening local economic development and the host community’s long-term resiliency with a new base of tax revenue.
As part of its $1.3 million commitment in response to the COVID-19 pandemic across the US and Canada, Enel Green Power developed initiatives to support community hospitals, schools and emergency responders in Texas. Efforts in this community included support to Throckmorton County Memorial Hospital for a new ambulance, which will be a more reliable option for patients within the service area.
Supporting STEM education at Throckmorton Collegiate ISD has been a primary focus. Students of all ages participated in a KidWind event, which gave them the opportunity to learn about renewable energy concepts through wind turbine modeling. Partnership with Texas State Technical College will create additional STEM access through drone demonstration programs and scholarship opportunities.
