    EVERPOWER IS A WIND INDUSTRY LEADER

    Since its founding in 2002, EverPower has used a unique approach to wind power development by partnering with landowners and communities to establish itself as a premier developer, owner, and operator of wind projects in the US. Wind Power is one of the fastest growing sources of energy worldwide and EverPower has been able to deliver best-in-class wind power projects and is poised to continue this growth into the future.

    The company currently owns and operates 752 MW’s of wind projects in the US spread across four states. While primarily focused on greenfield development early in the company’s growth, EverPower has used a mix of greenfield development and strategic acquisitions to fuel its growth. Most recently, EverPower purchased the 240MW Big Sky Project in Illinois which increased the company’s operating megawatts by 50%.

    EverPower is owned by Terra Firma, a leading private equity firm and is poised to continue our growth in the renewable energy sector.

      When wind or solar energy displace conventional generation, the reduction in emissions varies dramatically across the United States. Although the Southwest has the greatest solar resource, a solar panel in New Jersey displaces significantly more sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter than a panel in Arizona, resulting in 15 times more health and environmental benefits.
