Amazon Data Centers Powered by new 150-MW Indiana Wind Farm

Pattern Energy Group Inc. (Nasdaq: PEGI) dedicated a 150-MW wind energy project in Indiana that would help to supply power to data centers run by Amazon Web Services.

The Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge consists of 65 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbines. The turbine blades, nacelles, towers, and transformers were manufactured in the U.S. Mortenson Construction managed construction of the site. An average of 175 workers were on site during construction, and there are ten full-time permanent workers to operate and maintain the facility.

The wind farm is expected to add an estimated $45 million over 25 years to the regional economy through property taxes, landowner royalties, and support for local causes.
