Community leaders and elected officeholders joined officials from EDP Renewables and Indiana Michigan Power Company (I&M) recently to formally dedicate the Headwaters Wind Farm.

Located in Winchester, Ind., The wind farm’s 100 turbines have a capacity of 200 megawatts and are expected to generate more than 600,000 megawatt hours of electricity annually – enough to power more than 50,000 homes. EDPR developed and operates the facility and has an agreement to sell the energy it generates to I&M. The facility went on line in late December.

“These wind turbines in Randolph County help boost the local economy, but they do much more,” said Paul Chodak, I&M president and chief operating officer. “At a time when our nation and many of our customers expect more energy to come from renewable sources, wind plays an important role. I&M now generates energy using the wind, water, nuclear power and coal – and will add solar later this year. A diverse generation pool helps I&M adapt to changes in the energy industry.”

“Headwaters Wind Farm has helped I&M achieve a notable milestone this year – more than half of our energy now comes from non-carbon-emitting sources,” Chodak added. “Indiana Michigan Power is proud to be Winchester’s hometown energy provider, and we appreciate the community’s role in generating renewable energy.”
