The project

Strengthening Sustainability for the Sunflower State

The Diamond Vista wind farm is located in Dickinson and Marion counties, Kansas. Its 95 wind turbines generate approximately 1,300 GWh of renewable energy annually, which is equivalent to the electricity consumption needs of more than 105,000 US households, while avoiding about 900,000 tons of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere every year.

Milestones

Our Corporate Partners

Diamond Vista Wind Farm is supporting Kohler Co., a leading global manufacturer of plumbing and power products, in achieving its net zero greenhouse gas emissions target across operations by 2035. Through a 100 MW  virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with Enel Green Power, Kohler is able to procure enough renewable electricity for all its United States and Canada operations. The Diamond Vista Wind Farm has reduced Kohler’s greenhouse gas emissions footprint by 26%. The company is also working to send zero solid waste to landfills and develop innovative water-saving products and cleaner energy solutions.

Community Impact

Enel Green Power is dedicated to creating long-term shared value, supporting local economic development and long-term sustainability in its host communities. The project created over 500 jobs at the peak of construction and contributed $5.5 million dollars directly to the local economy.  Enel Green Power partnered with Cloud County Community College Wind Tech program to provide students with scholarships in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs, and with local non-profit grocery store, Tampa Trails Stop, on local food programs.

Construction

A sustainable construction process

Enel Green Power is committed to a sustainable worksite model. When we build projects, we monitor sustainability performance for energy, waste and water management, and the economic impact on the local community. We utilize innovative tools and construction techniques in order to ensure that the highest safety standards are met, both in the construction and management stages.

Enel Green Power has implemented enhanced safety measures at its power plants during the Covid-19 pandemic to keep its workforce safe and to ensure continued support to homes, businesses and critical services in the communities where it operates.

Digital Initiatives

Drones are deployed to perform aerial blade inspections after lightning events, and for other inspections as needed. Technicians and our Control and Monitoring Room (CMR) can remotely control turbines, analyze performance, and diagnose faults, which is very beneficial in times of inclement weather. Wind turbines have a Condition Monitoring System (CMS) that monitors vibrations and the health of the turbine's major components and subcomponents, including the main-bearing, gearbox, and generator.
