Wisconsin Public Service Corp. (WPSC), a subsidiary of Integrys Energy Group Inc., has signed a letter of intent to acquire a 150 MW portion of the High Country Energy wind project, located in Dodge and Olmsted counties in Minnesota. The High Country Wind Energy Park is expected to include a total of 300 MW of wind energy capacity.

WPSC expects to complete construction on the project in a time frame coinciding with the timeline set by the Midwest Independent System Operator for transmitting the electricity.

"In partnership with High Country, we are planning to immediately initiate the permitting and transmission processes," says Charlie Severance, WPSC general manager for renewable resources. "We anticipate we will have the answers we need in the next two years, and construction will start once the interconnection schedule is firmed up."
