Hog Creek Wind Farm

Hog Creek is a 66-megawatt wind farm located in Hardin County, Ohio. The wind farm complements the area’s mixed agricultural production of cropland and pasture, allowing farmers the option to continue farming while also generating revenue from the wind turbines.

The project serves the Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative, a not-for-profit generation and transmission cooperative that provides electric power and services to more than 160,000 consumers. Hog Creek delivers an important source of affordable renewable power to its customers and generates enough clean energy to meet the needs of more than 19,000 homes each year.
