The 25 Mile Creek wind project is located in Ellis County, Oklahoma. It will consist of 60 wind turbines that are expected to generate over 1.1 TWh of energy each year, equivalent to the electricity needs of over 100,000 US households and the avoidance of over 676,000 tons of CO2 emissions each year. It is Enel Green Power’s 12th wind farm in Oklahoma and is expected to achieve commercial operation by the end of 2022.
Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value and opportunities for rural economic development and long-term sustainability in its host communities in Oklahoma. Over its lifetime, the 25 Mile Creek wind project is expected to generate over $34 million in new local tax revenue for schools and public services, along with over $56 million in payments to landowners.
As part of Enel Green Power’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company provided $160,000 in relief funds to support food security, education, health services and first responders in Oklahoma. The company has created over 130 long-term jobs and over $2 million in support for community initiatives throughout the state.

Status of construction phase
Enel Green Power is committed to the “sustainable worksite” model and the creating shared value model (CSV). When we build projects, we monitor sustainability performance for energy, waste and water management, and the economic impact on the local community. During construction, over 350 local construction jobs are expected to be created, and the site will employ around 10 permanent full-time positions.

We deploy innovative tools and techniques when building wind farms, such as construction machinery equipped with active safety systems, smart tracking, advanced digital platforms and tablet software solutions to monitor and remotely support site activities, as well as plant commissioning. These processes and tools will enable swifter, more accurate and reliable data collection, thereby improving the quality of construction and facilitating communication between on-site and off-site teams. Smart glasses, remote assistant applications, 360 cameras and drones are used to conduct virtual site visits and safety inspections.
