In the hands of EDF RE since October 2014, Pilot Hill has an installed capacity of 175 MW.

Alongside Kankakee and Iroquois counties, the parc can supply the electric needs of an estimated 60.000 households. 175 local jobs were created from the building of the wind farm, contributing positively to local economy.

A PPA contract between Microsoft and EDF RE allows exclusive use of the park energy for over 20 years.
