A 255-megawatt (MW), 15,000-acre wind project, Vermilion Wind, projected to be the largest in East Central Illinois, has commenced its development phase in Vermilion County with several key milestones in place.  The wind development project is spearheaded by national renewable energy leader, Tri Global Energy, which develops and owns wind, solar and energy storage projects in Illinois, Indiana, Texas, Nebraska and Virginia.  Tri Global Energy (TGE) has long been the largest developer of wind power in Texas, the state which leads the U.S. in production of wind energy.  However, Illinois ranks sixth in the country for wind power production, and TGE's founder and chairman, John Billingsley, feels the state is poised to reap even more benefits through harnessing its assets for the development of wind energy.
