Avangrid to Construct Fifth Illinois Wind Farm


Avangrid has begun construction on Osagrove Flats, located in La Salle County, Ill., which will be the company’s fifth wind farm in the state and include 34 wind turbines with an expected 153 MW capacity.

“Avangrid has a long track record of successfully partnering with Illinois communities to build and operate wind farms, helping accelerate a clean energy transition in the state and across the country,” says Pedro Azagra, Avangrid CEO. “We are excited to build on our more than 15-year history in Illinois with Osagrove Flats, which will bring jobs and additional investment to the local community.”

Osagrove Flats is located near four other Avangrid wind farms operating in Illinois: Streator Cayuga Ridge South, Midland, Otter Creek and Providence Heights. When construction is complete, it is slated to bring the company’s total installed renewable capacity in the state to nearly 800 MW.
