Community Impact

Enel Green Power is dedicated to creating long-term shared value and supporting rural economic development and long-term sustainability in its host communities. The Ranchland wind project created over 320 jobs during construction and 16 permanent jobs at completion. The project is estimated to contribute $54 million in tax revenue and $49 million in lease payments to landowners over the project’s lifetime.

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 Eastland Memorial Hospital - Cisco, Eastland and Cross Plains schools, food pantries and emergency responders in Texas, through training and equipment aid.

Enel is committed to building the skilled energy workforce of the future and will sponsor STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs at Baird ISD and introduce the KidWind curriculum. By partnering with Texas State Technical College, scholarship opportunities will be available to students to further their interest in technical career paths. 

Sustainable model

Our sustainable work model

Enel Green Power is committed to the “sustainable worksite” model and the Creating Shared Value (CSV) model. When we build and operate projects, we monitor sustainability performance for energy, waste and water management, and the economic impact on the local community. We utilize innovative tools and techniques to ensure that the highest safety standards are met, throughout the lifecycle of the project.

Digital Initiatives

In operating wind farms, we use innovative tools and techniques such as advanced digital platforms and tablet software solutions to monitor and remotely support site activities. These processes and tools will enable swifter, more accurate and reliable data collection, thereby improving overall operations and facilitating communication between on-site and off-site teams. Smart glasses and remote assistant applications are used to perform virtual site visits and safety inspections. Condition Monitoring System (CMS) is utilized for wind turbine preventative maintenance needs by monitoring vibrations and the health of the turbines’ major components and subcomponents, including the main-bearing, gearbox and generator.
