Portland, Ore.-based Iberdrola Renewables and Maple Grove, Minn.-based Great River Energy have begun construction on the 99 MW Elm Creek Wind Power Project in southwestern Minnesota. The project is expected to be commercially operating by the end of the year.
‘With the addition of the output from Elm Creek Wind Farm, Great River Energy will have more than 300 MW of wind capacity under contract,’ says Mark Rathbun, Great River Energy's renewable energy project leader. ‘That gives us a great start toward meeting the state of Minnesota's renewable energy standard.’
The Elm Creek wind power project will feature 66 GE 1.5 MW turbines.
