GRANT PARK WIND FARM

About the Project

The Grant Park Wind Farm is an innovative wind project proposed for Kankakee County, Illinois that will have a capacity of up to 200 megawatts of clean, renewable energy. The Grant Park Wind project is more than wind turbines - it represents a significant capital investment in Illinois. Once operational it has the potential to create good-paying jobs and millions in additional revenue for landowners and the local community.

A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, the world’s largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and the sun.
