Located 60 miles southwest of Chicago in Ford and Kankakee counties, the wind farm comprises 92 Vestas V100 wind turbines. The facility will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 78,000 average Illinois homes, according to US Energy Information Administration. This is equivalent to avoiding more than 474,000 metric tons of CO₂ emissions annually. Wind-supported jobs grew by 20% in 2015 alone, according to the American Wind Energy Association. There are now 88,000 overall positions spread across all 50 states and 380,000 jobs expected by 2030.
