The General Services Administration has agreed to purchase 140 megawatts of wind energy from the Walnut Ridge Wind Farm in western Illinois.

GSA inked a power purchase agreement with MG2 Tribal Energy, a partnership between Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians and Geronimo Energy, MG2 Tribal Energy said Wednesday.

“As part of GSA’s commitment to greening the federal government, we are working to ensure that we don’t just use energy but create it as well,” said Dan Tangherlini, GSA administrator.

“This project will add to the power grid in a sustainable way and ensure that we become less dependent on fossil fuels.”

The ongoing development for the Walnut Ridge Wind Farm is expected to grow its total footprint to 225 MW.

The agreement between GSA and MG2 Tribal Energy is also expected to open new job opportunities.
