Welcome to the Fowler Farms, LLC wind project website!

The Fowler Farms Wind Project will be an important economic development opportunity for Clinton County. The project is expected to generate more than $8 million for Clinton County Townships, schools and local municipalities over the next 20 years, including $1.7 million for bonding projects in the St. Johns Public School District and $600,000 for capital projects in Fowler Public Schools.

A U.S. Department of Energy model projects that a wind development of this magnitude would have a total cost of $128 million, which includes more than $23 million in locally sourced materials such as concrete and electrical equipment and labor.

    Dear Forest Hill Energy,
    On your website you state that the Fowler Farms Wind Project is “expected to generate more than $8 million for Clinton County Townships, schools and local municipalities over the next 20 years”. Can you tell me how the $8 million was estimated? Is this estimate based on energy output from the turbines or is it based on some other factor?

    Thank you,
    Lori Pung

      Ms. Pung,

      The tax revenue does not take into account the energy output from the project. Just like home property taxes, a wind project’s taxes are calculated based on the value of the turbines and the physical infrastructure installed.
