Wind - Construction
Our construction teams are highly skilled at erecting and installing wind turbines for wind farms. Wind farms, in addition to their environmental benefits, can be built quickly in comparison to traditional power plants – generally in a few months.
For example, NextEra Energy Resources' Horse Hollow Wind Energy Center, one of the world’s largest wind farms totaling more than 700 megawatts, was built in just more than one year.
During construction, we are respectful of our neighbors. For example, we do not work near homes during night hours to avoid unnecessary disturbance for the residents. In addition, we make sure that our operations minimize interference with key activities such as planting or harvesting.
When construction is completed, areas near the service roads and turbines usually are graded and replanted with either grass or crop seed.
