The proposed 77.5 MW Green Hills Wind project is currently in planning. Located in Sullivan County, Missouri, the Green Hills Wind site was acquired in June 2018. Wind data for the site indicates a strong wind regime consistent with northern Missouri’s robust wind area. The Humphreys 161-kV substation lies within the project boundary, and interconnection studies have been conducted by Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. (AECI). The site consists of approximately 7,000 acres of land which is secured under long-term wind easements and lease agreements with local landowners. Approval by the Missouri Public Service Commission is not required and local zoning permits the wind project in this area. The project is working with U.S. Fish and Wildlife and Missouri Department of Conservation on bat and eagle studies and related permits.

Our goal for every project, every facility and every initiative, internal and external, is to build, operate, and align with the interests and priorities of those closest to, and most impacted by, our operations.
