Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value and supports local socio-economic development in Illinois. The project created 325 jobs during construction and contributed 50 million dollars directly to the local economy by purchasing wind turbines for the project from a local manufacturing plant. Enel provided a safer way to connect areas in Logan County by improving 26 miles of road in the area, including repaving 10 miles. Additionally, Enel revitalized the historic Bo-Jac Seed building in Mt. Pulaski to serve as the operations and maintenance building, further integrating the site’s employees into the local community.
Enel Green Power is committed to the long-term sustainability of the communities where it operates, and central Illinois is no exception. In Mt. Pulaski, Enel Green Power has helped establish a community development fund that has supported a variety of initiatives critical to the community such as funding for local schools and the establishment of a local grocery co-op. These initiatives will benefit the company’s local employees as well as the community at large.
