Exergy Development Group has commenced construction on 152 MW of wind farms across Idaho and Minnesota that will power the equivalent of 40,500 residential homes.
In Idaho, Exergy is installing 116 MW of wind power projects across Twin Falls, Lincoln and Bingham counties, and the remaining 36 MW are being installed in Faribault County, Minn.
Fagen Inc. is Exergy's primary engineering, procurement and construction – as well as balance-of-plant – contractor for the projects. The on-site owner's engineer and construction manager is BCL & Associates Inc.
‘We have made substantial progress on the project sites in both states,’ says Dustin Shively, lead project engineer. ‘By the end of 2011, foundations were poured and completed in Minnesota, and on the Idaho project sites, the foundations were excavated, and the site work, roads and grading were completed. We will begin erecting turbines in the second quarter of 2012 as weather permits, and all sites shall be fully operational by the fall.’
