We Energies has selected WindConnect, a subsidiary of Alliant Energy, as the general contractor for the Blue Sky Green Field wind project located in Fond du Lac County, Wis.
The Blue Sky Green Field wind farm will consist of 88 wind turbines and be capable of powering approximately 36,000 residential homes, We Energies says. Road building, cable installation and foundation work are expected to begin in June – the first wind turbines are scheduled for arrival in November of this year. If all goes as planned, the project should be complete in mid-2008.
‘WindConnect is excited to be selected by We Energies to develop this landmark renewable energy project,’ says Frank Greb, WindConnect's vice president. ‘Through the hard work and dedication of our experienced Wisconsin team, we are committed to its successful completion.’
