Environment

Waverly Wind Farm saves more than 353 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.

Environment

Landowners

Waverly Wind Farm is compatible with other land uses and provides a stable form of income to local landowners. More than $3.5 million has been paid to the wind farm’s landowners through 2019. These supportive landowners participate in long-term lease and easement agreements that cover turbines, access roads, and transmission corridors.

Technology

Turbines

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.

Waverly Wind Farm consists of 90 Gamesa G114 2.1 MW wind turbines and 5 Gamesa G114 2 MW wind turbines.
