|Geronimo Energy was founded by Noel Rahn, a lifelong farmer who wanted to develop a wind farm on his own land. In developing the Odin Wind Farm, he quickly realized all the benefits wind energy brings to rural communities. Though we have grown as a company, we have maintained our “farmer friendly” principles and incorporate it into all of our business decisions.
||Geronimo has a strategic partnership with Enel Green Power (EGP), the leading producer of renewable energy in the world. With over 600 plants and more than 7,000 installed megawatts worldwide, EGP provides vast experience and financial strength to Geronimo, ensuring that we have all the capabilities and financial backing necessary to bring our projects to completion.
||Wind and solar energy require no fuel inputs, such as coal or gas, nor does it use any water, which is quickly becoming an ever more scarce resource. It gives off no harmful emissions or pollutants that impact our environment or our food and water sources. Finally, new wind and solar projects directly offset the need for fossil fuel generation. That means that Geronimo’s current project pipeline of approximately 3,000 megawatts would offset the emissions of:
- 1,400,000 passenger vehicles
- 40,000 rail cars of coal
- 16,000,000 barrels of oil
- 900,000 houses
- 160,000,000 miles of jumbo jet flight
