Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge

Benton County, Indiana

Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge is a 150 MW facility helping Amazon Web Services achieve the goal of powering its operations with 100% renewable energy by 2025.

01 /
  • The facility will inject an estimated $40 million into the regional economy over its first 25 years of operations through property taxes, landowner royalties, and support for local causes.

  • Benton County demonstrates the pride of its vast farmland and wind energy crop with public tours of the many area wind farms and an annual Wind Festival in Fowler, which our site is proud to support.

Amazon Wind partners with the Benton Community Foundation to contribute to local initiatives and gives back to the region through sponsorships and donations. The mission of Benton Community Foundation is to enhance community through civic leadership, philanthropy, and charitable economic development initiatives.

We place great importance on being an active part of the local communities where we have a presence.

Please let us know if your group would like a presentation or if you have suggestions for community sponsorships and local causes we can support.

Amazon Wind’s yearlong construction period concluded in 2016 and entailed 300 workers during peak activity. Nine on-site personnel operate and maintain the facility.

The site utilizes 65 Siemens Gamesa 2.3 MW wind turbines, with the blades manufactured in Iowa, nacelles from Kansas, and turbine towers fabricated in Wisconsin by Broadwind and in Michigan by Ventower.

Compared to coal-fired generation, its annual production conserves enough water to meet the needs of 8,000 people and avoids carbon dioxide emissions equal to taking 110,000 cars off the roads each year.
