Since founding Vision Energy in 2003, Turner Hunt has developed wind farm projects throughout the Midwest, bringing clean renewable energy to power buyers including Microsoft, American Electric Power, Duke Energy, and Dominion Power. His most recent project, K4 Wind Farm, located one hour south of Chicago, was purchased by Electricity de France (EDF) and operates under the name Pilot Hill Wind Farm.
In 2006, Turner spearheaded the development of Fowler Ridge, the largest wind farm project east of the Mississippi. With its fourth phase of construction--Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge--completed by Pattern Energy in December of 2015, the entire wind farm now generates 750 megawatts at maximum output.
Prior to Vision, Turner was director of new business at Hunt Assisted Living and headed all development activities in the southeastern US. He graduated from the University of Kansas with a masters in Aerospace Engineering and served as an aerodynamics engineer with the former McDonnell Douglas Company where he was involved with the F/A-18 and F-15 fighter jet programs.
Turner has launched several start-up companies, including GXC, a pioneering voice over IP provider; X-Winder, a manufacturer of desktop carbon fiber filament winders; and THOR Energy, a developer of hydrokinetic renewable energy systems. He is currently developing a crowd funding platform that supports local renewable energy projects. Turner holds several US Patents and is a licensed instrument rated pilot.
