Bright Stalk Wind Farm

The Bright Stalk Wind Farm is a 57-turbine wind farm near Chenoa 22 in northeastern McLean County in the U.S. state of Illinois. The turbines were designed to generate a maximum of 205 megawatts of electricity.[1] The complex was completed in 2019 by EDP Renewables North America at a cost of more than $300 million, and entered operations in 2020.[2]

Detail

The Bright Stalk project's 57 wind turbines are each rated at 3.6 MW.[1] 203 megawatts of the project's overall 205-mW capacity were pre-sold to Walmart (123 mW) and Salesforce (80 mW). The project owner states that the wind farm has created nine permanent jobs in and around Chenoa.[2]
