Enel Green Power North America Inc. has started construction on the 66-MW Whitney Hill wind project in Logan County, Ill., and the 236.5-MW White Cloud Wind Project in Nodaway County, Mo.
The Whitney Hill project is expected to begin operations by the end of 2019, and the White Cloud wind farm is slated for commercial operations in the second half of 2020.
White Cloud will sell its output to Associated Electric Cooperative Inc., a utility in Springfield, Mo.
