Community wind developer Juhl Wind Inc. has announced the completion and start-up of its Winona County wind project in Minnesota.
According to the company, the $3.6 million project uses two Unison, direct-drive wind turbine generators. The project was developed and constructed by Juhl Energy Development Inc., the wholly owned development subsidiary of Juhl Wind. Juhl Renewable Asset Investment Inc. is the project's majority equity owner.
‘We truly could not have completed this project if it wasn't for the help of the Winona County Economic Development Authority and the patience of the family who owns the property on which the project is situated – it was a total team effort," says Corey Juhl, vice president of project development at Juhl Wind. "This project has already provided significant economic benefits to Winona County in the form of construction jobs and maintenance employment opportunities and will continue to provide these benefits over the long term.’
