Hope Ridge Wind Project
Enel Green Power is developing a 260 MW wind project that will provide sustainable, affordable energy, benefit the local economy, and support grid resiliency for Dickinson County, Kansas residents. The Hope Ridge Wind Project is estimated to provide tens of millions in local tax revenue. According to the Company’s web site, the Developer has asked the Federal Aviation Administration to evaluate the placement of 123 wind turbines near Hope. The 95 square-mile footprint of the Hope Ridge Wind Project is primarily in Logan, Ridge, Union and Hope townships. Jon Beck, development manager for Enel Green Power, said the company plans to submit a proposed road maintenance agreement to Dickinson County this week. It anticipates requesting permits to build the turbines in the spring of 2023. Enel Green Power is a global wind farm developer.
