Juhl Wind Inc. says it has received approximately $1.413 million in U.S. stimulus grant funding for its recently completed $4.8 million Winona County Wind Project, located in Winona County, Minn.
The grant was issued by the U.S. Treasury Department in accordance with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The proceeds of the grant primarily went toward payment of construction costs for the project, which is now owned by the company's Juhl Renewable Assets Inc. subsidiary.
The Winona County Wind Project was completed and put into commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2011. The project was developed and constructed by Juhl Energy Development Inc., the wholly owned development subsidiary of Juhl Wind Inc., with initial project participation by the Winona County Economic Development Authority.
