Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value for the communities in which it operates. Alta Farms Wind Project II aims to have a positive, long-term impact on the local economy, creating approximately 275 new jobs during construction and approximately 12 full-time permanent jobs, while improving many miles of roads throughout Dewitt County. Alta Farms Wind Project II is expected to generate over $44 million in property taxes and $50 million in landowner payments over the next 25 years, and it represents a total investment of approximately $345 million.
During project development, Enel Green Power sponsored education initiatives as well as COVID-19 relief projects with local partners, including The Vault Community Center, Clinton Education Association and Clinton Community Educational Foundation. During operations, Enel Green Power will continue to support local education initiatives with Clinton USD #15, providing STEM resources and renewable energy education programs to the local community. Additionally, a community advisory committee will be formed to support the identification of high-impact local projects and grant activities to enable further economic development opportunities for the community.
