Communities

We place great importance on being an active part of the local communities in which we operate. We work proactively with local leaders, environmental organizations, and entities to identify and address their concerns, as well as expand the benefits from our facilities. We recognize the impact our facilities have on the local environment and our goal is to be a contributing member of the community.

Our facilities benefit communities through increased tax revenue, job creation and other contributions. Our facilities create new jobs and we strongly encourage our contractors to hire qualified local subcontractors whenever possible.

Our presence also brings significant indirect economic benefits to the community through increased revenues for service industries and the purchase of goods and services during construction and operation.

Landowner participation and support is integral to any project we undertake. We understand the trust that has been placed in us, and we are committed to the good stewardship of the land throughout the duration of the project. Once a facility is operational, our contracts provide landowners with a steady revenue stream. As a result, wind power generation can increase the economic return of the land, without sacrificing the regular use of that land.
