Community Impact

Enel Green Power has provided support to key community needs in northwest Missouri, through the White Cloud wind farm in Nodaway County, and the nearby Rock Creek wind farm operating in Atchison County. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has provided $110,000 to 10 organizations in the state, part of the $1.3 million community relief efforts across the US. In order to address health, social services and socio-economic impacts from the pandemic, Enel Green Power contributed $50,000 to Community Hospital-Fairfax, $5,000 to the Nodaway County Senior Citizens Center and $25,000 to volunteer fire districts in Polk, Skidmore, Graham and Barnard.

Status of construction phase

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 to build these new wind farms, ensuring that the highest safety standards are met, both in the construction and management stages. 

Additionally, 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.
