Senior Operations Technician, Iberdrola Renewables
Steve Evans is a Senior Operations Technician at Iberdrola Renewables’ Elm Creek II Wind Farm in Alpha, Minnesota. The wind farm where Steve works is the third project Iberdrola has developed in partnership with a landowner group and includes 62 turbines. Steve started as a warranty technician on the GE wind turbines at the Trimont Wind Farm and later moved to work on the Mitsubishi wind turbines at Elm Creek II, which makes enough electricity to power 40,000 homes in a year.
Iberdrola Renewables is the second-largest wind operator in the U.S. and is one of the few companies able to provide clean energy solutions that allow large industrial and commercial customers to manage risks and uncertainty in the natural gas and power industries. Steve is happy to work at Iberdrola Renewables because he’s able to put his skills to good use on homeground. He enjoys working in the clean energy field because he continues to learn a lot. One day, he hopes to manage his own wind farm.
