Summary of Indiana Wind

Indiana has 1,745 MW of wind installed, which reflects a 2014 increase of 200 MW brought online by the Headwaters Wind Farm in Randolph County.  A major new development for 2015 is the Amazon Wind Farm (Fowler Ridge).  This 150 MW project will feed the electric grids that supply Amazon Web Services datacenters. 

A positive policy development for small wind occurred in Indiana this past legislative session.  An investor owned utility, NIPSCO, agreed to extend its successful voluntary feed-in tariff program, which will facilitate more small wind in northern Indiana. 

Indiana is one of three states in the MWEC region with a modest renewable energy goal (10% by 2015) that is voluntary.
