The Fowler Ridge Wind Farm currently consists of two completed phases with the possibility of a third phase some time in the near future. The wind farm is in Benton [1] County, Indiana, near the city of Fowler, IN about 90 miles (140 km) northwest of Indianapolis. Fowler Ridge was constructed in two phases and has a nameplate capacity of 600 MW.[2]

Contents

Phase one

The first phase of the project is online[3] and consists of 222 wind turbines, 182 Vestas V82-1.65 MW turbines and 40 Clipper C-96 2.5 MW[3][4] turbines, with a nameplate capacity of 400 MW.[1][5][6]

Phase two

Phase two consists of 133 GE 1.5 MW ESS[7] wind turbines with a nameplate capacity of 200 MW. Construction began in early 2009 and phase two became operational in early 2010.[7]

Fowler Ridge is only the second utility-scale wind power plant in Indiana, after the 130.5 MW Goodland I wind farm (also in Benton County) which came online in 2008.[1] Some of the wind turbines are visible from US-52, the main highway through the County. They are also visible along US-41 in the Boswell area.
