Benton County, Indiana has another wind farm under construction. The Amazon Wind Farm is being built.
After two years of development, farmland will be occupied by 65 turbines west of Fowler, just off State Road 18.
The Amazon Wind Farm entered into a 13-year power purchase agreement to supply electricity for its web services.
150 megawatts is the listed power, which is the equivalent of enough energy for 50,000 households.
The construction phase is set to be completed by the end of the year.
Pattern Energy Engineering manager Brad Hillman said that he cannot comment on the financial agreements they reached with area farmers, but he says the overall boost to the economy is substantial.
Taxes and onsite staff that will work on the site is estimated to generate around $40 million over the next 25 years.
Hillman said farmers benefit from leasing their land for the use of these turbines as well, especially during a rain-filled summer like this year.
Hillman said "It's a great way to create a stable revenue source for farmers who are in a position to have a wind turbine on their land, which is really good for this year because of all the rain we have gotten."
Hillman said it's all about creating a better tomorrow, "to create that environmentally power-friendly generation."
