304-MW Blue Creek Wind Farm Completed

 

If you’re not familiar with energy metrics, 304 MW is huge (the largest solar energy plant in the world is 354 MW, and the second-largest is 150 MW). So, news that Iberdrola has just finished construction of a 304-MW wind farm in Ohio is,.. well,.. big!

Here are some details on the project:

  • it includes 152 Gamesa G90 (2-MW) turbines;
  • Blue Creek is situated in 6 townships in Van Wert and Paulding Counties;
  • 20 people will have permanent jobs maintaining and operating the wind farm, while 500 local construction workers were employed full-time at the height of construction;
  • FirstEnergy Solutions, a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., has signed a power purchase agreement for 100 MW of the power production of the wind farm over the course of 20 years.
