Tradewind Reflects on 2018 Progress and 4GW of Installed Projects

Like most companies, the team at Tradewind Energy is hitting the ground running in 2019! However, we have to take a moment to reflect on 2018 and recognizing the efforts of each and every employee, partner and supporter that helped drive us a little closer to our sustainability goals.


To date, Tradewind has completed over 4 GW of installed wind and solar projects. Our solar portfolio continues to rapidly grow with active solar development in 22 states, and we have begun developing in the battery storage arena.


Our 2018 milestones could never have been met without tremendous dedication from the entire team – working with industry partners, supporters and customers who share our passion for clean energy.  Within the past year we have seen four Tradewind-developed projects become operational.  Those projects include the Rattlesnake Creek Wind Project, the Diamond Vista Wind Project (both owned and operated by Enel Green Power North America), the first phase of the North English Wind Project (owned and operated by MidAmerican Energy Company), and the Hamilton County Solar Project (owned and operated by Duke Energy).


“Tradewind had another market-leading year in 2018” says Rob Freeman, CEO of Tradewind Energy. “Our continued success is a testament to the dedication of our team, and our commitment to the continued march toward abundant, clean energy for everyone. It takes customers with the same commitment to make this happen, and we also continue to see boundless demand from all kinds of companies and utilities for our product. Wind and solar power have clearly become the dominant sources of new power generation in the U.S. market, and we know that the general public is ultimately behind the growth of this great industry.”
