High Country Energy LLC, along with its managing partner, National Wind LLC, has opened an office in Kasson, Minn. This new office will allow the company to better address the growing demand for local involvement in its wind farm development, along with improving services to the current 190 local participating residents. A majority of these residents have an ownership stake in High Country Energy.
High Country Energy is developing over 300 MW of community-owned wind energy projects in Dodge, Olmsted and Mower Counties, Minn. Missy Kelley and Dan Hemmingsen, field specialists for High Country Energy, will be working out of the new office, helping facilitate landowner participation in this development.
‘As a locally owned wind farm company, we want our development to become a positive, permanent part of the community,’ says Hemmingsen. ‘And as our wind project progresses, we want to continue to provide the best possible support and services to our participating members. Our new office allows us to do just that. Local landowners now have an easily accessible place to go if they have questions or if they need to make an appointment.’
The Kasson office is located at 122 W. Main St., and its winter hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
