INTRODUCING INDIGO WIND
The Indigo Wind project provides an opportunity to help address Iowa's growing electricity demand with homegrown energy, while diversifying Cerro Gordo and Hancock Counties' economy and supporting jobs in the local community.
Indigo Wind will create jobs and generate an entirely new source of long-term revenue for local schools, governments, and landowners. In the long term, the project promises to bring sustained tax revenue to the county for the local government and schools, as well as more than 30 years of local purchasing, employment, and investment.

AN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR Cerro Gordo and Hancock Counties
Indigo Wind will create jobs and generate an entirely new source of long-term revenue for Cerro Gordo and Hancock Counties, local government services, and property owners. The total direct financial impact to the region will be in the millions of dollars over the life of the project, with additional indirect economic benefits to the local economy.
Landowners who sign up property for the project will receive annual payments. These payments will continue over the projected 30-year lifespan of the wind farm, injecting tens of millions of dollars into the economy to support local businesses, contractors, equipment suppliers, auto dealers, and others. In addition, the power from Indigo Wind will be delivered into the Iowa electrical grid, reducing the need to import electricity from outside markets.
