Enel Green Power also provided $30,000 for the Tarkio R-1 School District to fund science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) training in the region and $30,000 to upgrade lighting and sound systems for the school theate
As part of its $1.3 million commitment to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the US, Enel Green Power contributed $69,000 to food security organizations and first responders in Kansas. Furthermore, our on-site and corporate employees raised over $8,000 in food, cash and gift certificates for the community of Minneola, KS. The new 199 MW expansion alone will generate over $18 million in new revenue for schools and public services over the project's lifetime.
