A long-term, local partner


With every onshore wind project we undertake, we prioritize the needs of the community and work to deliver benefits to all stakeholders.

Working with landowners

With extensive experience in a variety of regions, our land lease partners can be confident our projects will be designed carefully to ensure the protection of roads, minimize impacts on neighbors, and preserve the integrity of the soil and land.

Partnering with local governments

Our onshore wind projects generate millions of dollars in new revenue for local governments that can help build new schools, improve infrastructure, expand emergency services, and enhance the quality of life in the community.

Investing in local communities

Our commitment to being a good neighbor includes investing in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs in local schools that can help create the next generation of highly skilled, clean energy workers.
