Community Benefits

Communities in Iowa and Illinois will benefit from the SOO Green HVDC Link because it will generate more than $2.2 billion in economic output and create 12,000 construction jobs and more than 75 jobs during operation in Iowa and Illinois. Additionally, communities will benefit from more than $1.5 billion in induced investment in new renewable energy component production.

The project will also generate revenue for local jurisdictions throughout its 50-year expected service life, supporting public services such as roads, emergency services and schools.

Once the hiring process begins, we look forward to finding high-quality, high-character candidates for project positions.
