Wind Power | Fowler Ridge Wind Farm

The Fowler Ridge Wind Farm is currently under construction in Benton County, Indiana. It is a wind energy project that is going to be completed in two phases and will have a maximum electricity capacity of 750MW. The first phase of the project will bring the first 400MW on-line with hopes that this part of the project will be completed by the end of 2008.

Phase I of the project will consist of 222 wind turbines with construction of the remaining wind turbines (350MW worth) possibly beginning in early 2009. The site of the Fowler Ridge Wind Farm is around 90 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

The project development, ownership and operational control is being done in a joint partnership between Dominion and BP Renewable Energy North America for 650MW of the produced electricity. BP will retain control over the remaining 100MW.

The second phase of the project has been completed at the start of 2010 and is now capable of producing up to 199.5MW of power. This brings the capacity of the combined wind farms to 599.5MW. There is potentially going to be a phase III development in the future too. You can read more about the details of Fowler Ridge Wind Farm Phase II.
