Operations at the 185 MW Glacier Sands wind project are under way, Cordelio Power announced Tuesday.
The wind farm, located in Mason County, Illinois, includes 43 Vestas V150-4.3 wind turbines. Microsoft Corporation will purchase 100% of the renewable energy generated from the project over a 15-year contract.
Cordelio announced it had completed financing for the project in July. The power producer oversees a pipeline of over 6,500 MW of wind, solar and storage projects in the Western and Midwestern U.S.
