    Farm Fact #2

    Benefits to the Community

    Marble River Wind Farm yields significant economic benefits to the community in the form of payments to landowners, local spending, and annual community investment.

    Marble River represents a capital investment of approximately $473 million and has dispersed $10.7 million in cumulative payments to local governments through 2017. The project created 306 full-time equivalent jobs during construction as well as five permanent jobs. Through 2017, approximately $55.3 million has been spent within 50 miles of the wind farm.

    Farm Fact #3

    Benefits to the Environment

    Marble River Wind Farm saves more than 330 million gallons of water each year and displaces carbon emissions from fossil fuel power plants, a major contributor to climate change. Wind energy also enhances air quality by helping to mitigate the health effects of harmful air pollutants.

    Technology

    Modern wind turbine generators are sophisticated, high-tech machines designed to capture the kinetic energy of the wind and convert it into electricity. A turbine’s blades capture the wind and rotate an internal shaft connected to a gearbox spinning a generator to produce electricity. Tubular steel towers support a hub with three attached blades and a nacelle, which houses the shaft, gearbox, generator, and controls. Wind measurements are collected to automatically rotate the turbine to face the strongest wind and angle, or “pitch,” its blades to optimize the energy captured. Electricity must be produced at just the right frequency and voltage to be compatible with the utility grid.

    Marble River Wind Farm consists of 70 Vestas V112 3.075 MW wind turbines.
