Tradewind Energy announced that it is partnering with Facebook and the Omaha Public Power District in Nebraska on the Rattlesnake Creek Wind Project in Dixon County, Nebraska.

Once the project is operational, it will provide clean renewable energy to Facebook’s new Papillion Data Center. Rattlesnake Creek Wind Project expects to add 320 MW of wind energy to the electrical grid, 200 MW of which will be allocated for the data center and 120 MW will be available to other buyers.

Tradewind says it is proud to partner with Facebook, and help lead the renewables’ industry in the shift that is occurring toward sustainability in the power sector. Companies such as Facebook are enabling the construction of more and more wind and solar-power projects across the U.S.
