Community Impact

Enel Green Power provided a safer way to connect areas in Logan County by improving 25 miles of road in the area, including repaving 10 miles.  $26,000 was donated to the Hennessey Fire, Dover Fire and Crescent Fire Departments for equipment and bunker gear. Enel Green Power is co-sponsoring the Leadership Hennessey for Students program for an in-person learning opportunity on wind energy and its role in the town and the county's economic development.  Enel Green Power is also partnering with the local FFA (Future Farmers of America) and 4RKids to manage the recycling stations throughout the community.
