LL_map_for_site.pngAbout Lincoln Land Wind

Apex Clean Energy is working with local officials, private landowners, and key stakeholders to explore the feasibility of constructing Lincoln Land Wind, a 300-megawatt wind energy project—enough clean, safe electricity to power up to 110,000 American homes.

Located in Morgan County, this project represents significant private investment in the local economy and is possible thanks to several key attributes:

  • Verified wind resource
  • Existing infrastructure and transmission capacity
  • Strong landowner support and community input

 

Benefits of Lincoln Land Wind

The power generated by Lincoln Land Wind will be delivered to the Illinois electrical grid, increasing American energy independence and helping the State of Illinois achieve its goal of sourcing 25% of all electricity consumed in the state from renewables by 2025. Total project benefits include:

  • $65.6 million in new tax revenue for Morgan County over the life of the project
  • $3 million in annual lease payments to private landowners
  • Enough safe, clean electricity for approximately 125,000 American homes (300 MW)
  • Hundreds of jobs and significant local spending during construction
  • About 24 full-time local jobs for operations and maintenance
  • Protections for taxpayers against decommissioning costs
  • Support for American energy independence
