Hales Lake Wind Energy Center

Hales Lake Wind Energy Center

The Hales Lake Wind Energy Center is located in Camden and Currituck counties in northeastern North Carolina.  April Montgomery of REAP has assisted Chicago-based developer Invenergy in their development of this project since 2010, securing land leases, conducting public information meetings and coordinating local, state and federal permitting protocols.  The 150MW project would feature 89 wind turbines on private land, represent $200 million capital investment, and create 150 construction jobs and 15 full-time positions in the local community.
