A CLEAN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR Southwest Virginia
Pinewood Wind will create jobs and generate an entirely new source of long-term revenue for local schools, government services, and property owners. The total direct financial impact to the region will be in the millions of dollars over the life of the project, with additional indirect economic benefits greatly exceeding that number.
Landowners with wind facilities on their property will receive annual lease payments. These payments will continue over the projected 30-year lifespan of the wind farm, injecting millions of dollars into the local economy to support local merchants, contractors, equipment suppliers, auto dealers, and others. The power from Pinewood Wind will be delivered into the Virginia electrical grid, reducing the need to import electricity from outside markets.
