DILLON — Vail Resorts officials announced Wednesday that the corporation has committed to purchase 310,000 megawatt hours of wind energy annually from the new 82-turbine Plum Creek Wind project based in Wayne County, Nebraska.

In 2018, Vail Resorts announced a partnership with the global renewable energy company Ørsted, which enabled the Plum Creek Wind project.

Officials said the purchase will address more than 90% of the company’s current electricity use across its 34 North American resorts. It’s a major step toward Vail Resorts’ Commitment to Zero, a pledge to powered 100% by renewable electricity by 2030.
