Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value and has had an immediate positive impact on the communities of central Nebraska. 300 new jobs were created during the plant’s construction, and this had a significant impact on Dixon County’s economy. Enel gave the area a further boost by purchasing 11 million dollars in goods and services from local companies. While 50 kilometers of new roads were being built, Enel Green Power collaborated with local associations and groups that protect fish and wildlife to minimize the environmental impact.
The company supported the Rural Workforce Housing Investment Fund in Wakefield. This is used by the community to remodel or build new homes to help the area attract and maintain a rural work force. Throughout the project, Enel Green Power will sponsor education and training in science, technology and renewable energy, providing scholarships to local students so that they can take part in training programs for the wind technicians of the future.
