May 14, 2021: Enel Green Power North America, a subsidiary of Italy’s Enel Group, announced on May 5 it had started construction on five new renewable energy projects in the US.

The five new projects under construction will generate over 4.1TWh of renewable electricity a year, enough to power over 525,000 US households annually.

Over their lifetime, the five new projects are expected to generate around $450 million in tax revenue for local communities and new income for project landowners, the firm said.

With these projects, Enel Green Power North America says it has over 2.3GW of renewable generation under construction and by mid-year will have 606MW of battery storage capacity under construction.

All five projects have offtake agreements for a portion of their output.
