Located in DeKalb County in northwestern Missouri, Lost Creek Wind sits on 32,000 acres of agricultural land. Pattern Energy acquired the fully operational facility from Wind Capital Group in 2015.

Community

Over the first 20 years of operations, the facility is expected to contribute more than $30 million in local taxes that will benefit the State of Missouri, DeKalb County, King City, and Polk Township. The facility employs 12 full-time personnel to operate and maintain the facility, with additional local support as needed.

We believe in vibrant communities. We are actively engaged with the community and always looking for new partners and programs to support. Our areas of support include community events, health and wellness, youth and education, economic development, environmental causes, and cultural awareness.

Environment

The facility generates enough electricity to supply the annual needs of 50,000 Missouri homes. We have a strong commitment to promoting environmental stewardship alongside corporate responsibility. Producing clean energy significantly conserves water, and offsets carbon dioxide emissions.

Technology

Lost Creek Wind reached commercial operation in 2010 and has 20-year power purchase agreement to deliver clean power to Associated Electrical Cooperative Inc. The 150 MW facility runs 100 American-made General Electric 1.5 Megawatt (MW) turbines.
