Wind Quarry LLC says it has executed a purchase and sale agreement with Pattern Renewables 2 LP (Pattern Development) for Wind Quarry’s 103 MW Willow Creek Project in Butte County, S.D.
The project, located on approximately 20,000 acres of private ranch land, interconnects to the Western Area Power Administration’s 115 kV transmission line and, once operational, will generate enough energy to power 40,000 homes.
The company says all major construction permits are now complete.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Pattern Development on the Willow Creek Project,” says Patrick O’Meara, CEO of Wind Quarry LLC. “This purchase agreement helps pave the way for construction of the Willow Creek project, which will not only generate clean renewable energy for thousands of homes and businesses, but will also provide a major economic benefit to the local community.”
“We are thrilled to acquire our first wind project in South Dakota and look forward to working with Wind Quarry and the local community to develop the Willow Creek Project, creating jobs, economic spending and a new source of energy in Butte County,” comments Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Development.
