Invenergy has announced the completion of construction and start of full commercial operations for its 200 MW Bishop Hill Wind Energy facility in Henry County, Ill.

The developer says the wind farm features 133 General Electric wind turbines located on 22,000 acres of farm land.

According to Invenergy, Bishop Hill employed 220 workers at the peak of construction. Fourteen full-time Invenergy employees now operate and maintain the project.

Invenergy notes that a second phase of Bishop Hill is currently under construction. The second phase of the project was acquired in March by MidAmerican Energy Holdings Co., Invenergy says.

A third phase of Bishop Hill - featuring 83 turbines - is also in development in Henry County, the developer adds.
