Wisconsin Power and Light Co. (WPL), a subsidiary of Alliant Energy Corp., broke ground on the Cedar Ridge Wind Farm, the company's first fully owned and operated wind farm. Once complete, the site will produce enough energy to power at least 17,000 homes, according to the company.

The Cedar Ridge Wind Farm will cover a 12.2-square-mile area in the townships of Eden and Empire in Fond du Lac County, Wis. Forty-one Vestas wind turbines will generate approximately 68 MW of electricity.

Construction will be done in phases, beginning with the installation of turbine access roads, foundations and the substation this fall. Turbine erection, assembly and commissioning, along with public road improvements and cabling, will take place in 2008. The wind farm is expected to be online by the end of 2008.
