Community wind developer Juhl Wind Inc. has executed a 20-year, 19.8 MW power purchase agreement between Adams Wind Generations LLC and Xcel Energy.
The Adams Wind Generations LLC project will be community-owned and -operated, with plans to utilize 12 wind turbines at an estimated cost of approximately $46 million. The project is similar to Juhl's recently announced Danielson wind farm.
The Adams project will be located in Meeker County, Minn., and will consist of a locally controlled LLC made up of Meeker County residents and a to-be-determined equity partner.
Juhl Wind is forecasting that the Adams Wind Farm will commence initial operations in the fourth quarter of 2010, and will continue to serve as the project's developer and contractor.
