Project introduction

Silo Bend is a 200 MW wind project currently under development in Clark County, Wisconsin. It will be built on participating landowners’ properties and provide a new source of farming income and revenue to the county and towns. Local pride in farming, especially dairy, defines Clark County, and RWE is honored to develop here.

Silo Bend is expected to enter commercial operations in 2026-2027.

Status: In development

Project Benefits

Supporting Clark County

At 200 MW, Silo Bend would provide up to $800,000 annually between Clark County and host towns. This new source of public funding can reduce the tax burden on local residents and be used to support essential services including schools, roads, fire departments and first responders.

Farming tradition

Harvesting wind for electricity is part of a long tradition of using land responsibly for production. Silo Bend Wind Farm will be located on participating landowners’ private property, offering a stable, 30-year source of income while powering homes and businesses. Wind farms leave over 99% of the land within a project’s footprint untouched and are designed to coexist with regular agricultural operations because they.

Part of rural economies

Participating farmers can continue their production while gaining an income stream that helps reinvest in farming operations and spend money locally. Wind farms create hundreds of jobs during construction, including local sourcing opportunities. Lodging, restaurants, repair shops, and fuel sales will see an economic boom in that time. During the operational life of the project, 6-8 permanent positions will be staffed locally.

Stronger electric grid

Wind energy is the lowest cost source of electricity today. Wind farms increase the resiliency of the electric grid while protecting consumers from the volatility and rising costs of traditional energy sources.


Protecting the local wildlife

Silo Bend Wind Farm will also be designed to minimize impacts to wildlife. Comprehensive studies are part of the planning and permitting process to plan carefully around protected species. Wind turbines and other wind facilities are sited carefully according to permits.

At the end of Silo Bend’s useful life, equipment is removed and the land is returned to its original uses.

Improving the environment

Wind farms generate electricity without producing any pollution, resulting in cleaner air and water when compared to conventional sources of power. Wind energy generation also consumes far less water than conventional sources.

With a carbon payback of less than a year, wind energy is critical solution to climate change, which is the largest threat to many bird and wildlife species.
