Community Benefits

CPV is dedicated to increasing North America’s sustainability; both economically and environmentally. Using domestically available energy sources, like wind and natural gas, and partnering with host communities to support their tax base and school districts, CPV works to stabilize and improve local and state economies.

To this end, CPV is an active partner in the Woodward community.  Since development began in 2008, CPV has contributed thousands of dollars annually to a wide array of non-profit organizations and events including local fire departments and academic fundraisers, the Future Farmers of America Premium Auction and the Woodward Elks Rodeo, as well as key local family service programs and other worthwhile community support groups.

CPV participated in the development of the Wind Technology program at the High Plains Tech Center in Woodward and together with Oklahoma Gas and Electric and the Woodward Industrial Foundation, CPV was successful in convincing Siemens Energy to locate a wind generation service and distribution center in Woodward.

On the ad valorem tax front, Keenan II’s assessment provides over $1 million dollars annually to local schools and other taxing jurisdictions.  The wind also farm pays approximately $1 million annually in royalty payments to local farmers and ranchers who are participants in the Project.  It provides both direct and indirect jobs, and its employees are actively involved as volunteers in wide range of community activities.
