The company started construction of its Twin Forks Wind Farm and expects to have it completed by the end of 2017. Engineers and construction teams began a series of public road upgrades in several townships, which will enable turbine construction to begin once the roads are completed.
“Turning dirt and getting started on construction is always an exciting time for us, as it marks the next step in a lengthy development process. It is always great to work with local communities in Macon County to turn projects like this into a reality as physical construction begins,” said Patrick Woodson, Chairman of E.ON North America. “E.ON’s wind farms not only produce clean, renewable power, but create jobs, give farmers and land owners additional sources of income, and help local officials improve schools and other critical public services.”
Once Twin Forks is completed, E.ON’s wind farms will produce 578 MW of generating capacity in Illinois.
