Scout Clean Energy, a Colorado-based renewable energy developer and portfolio company of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, announced the successful completion of all local permitting approvals for the 130 megawatt (MW) Bitter Ridge Wind Farm in Jay County, Indiana.
Jay County Council recently granted a 10-year tax abatement for the proposed $150 million Bitter Ridge Wind Farm. The project proposes to install up to 59 wind turbines across approximately 12,000 acres in Jay County. The project is now expected to proceed toward final design, procurement and construction with a target operations date in early 2020.
Scout received unanimous approval for the development plan for Bitter Ridge in June and recently completed road and drainage use, decommissioning and economic development agreements with the Jay County Commissioners.
This is Scout’s first wind power project in Indiana and it follows closely on the heels of the company’s completion in September of the 200MW Persimmon Creek wind farm in Oklahoma.
Together, Quinbrook and Scout have expanded the wind project portfolio to over 2.3GW of potential capacity, spanning 13 projects in 10 states. Bitter Ridge construction will be managed by Harvest Energy Services, a Scout affiliate.
