Rock River in Wyoming, was Shell WindEnergy’s first commercial -scale windpark. The 50 megawatt (MW) wind power facility is located 60km west of Laramie, Carbon County, Wyoming.
In October 2001, Rock River started to deliver clean, renewable wind power after less than four months from breaking ground to generation start-up. The Rock River facility exemplifies the possibilities in bringing new wind generation online quickly and efficiently. As our first major investment in the US wind energy sector, Rock River is a flagship site. It provides experience in commercial wind park operations, which is already proving valuable as we grow the business further. The wind farm consists of 50 1 MW Mitsubishi turbines and produces enough power for approximately 25,000 households. Rock River is co-owned with Goldman Sachs.
