Juhl Wind Inc. has signed an agreement with Honda Transmission Mfg. of America Inc. to develop, install and operate two utility-scale wind turbines that will generate electricity for a Honda plant in Russell's Point, Ohio.

Juhl Wind will provide the development services and the construction management for the $8 million project, which is scheduled to be completed this year. Juhl Wind acquired the development asset from Boulder, Colo.-based NexGen Energy Partners in 2011, and Juhl Wind is expected to take ownership in the project under its Juhl Renewable Asset subsidiary.

Juhl Wind will also oversee the construction and ongoing operation of the wind turbines. Once the turbines begin operating later this year, the Honda transmission plant will be the first major automotive manufacturing facility in the U.S. to obtain a substantial amount of its electricity directly from wind turbines located on its property, according to Juhl Wind.
