Eden, S.D.-based Dakota Wind Energy LLC, a community-owned wind development company, has announced that it has acquired over 40,000 acres of land under option in connection with its plans to develop the state's largest community-based wind farm in Day, Roberts and Marshall counties. This is over half the acres needed to develop wind projects up to an aggregate of 750 MW, according to the company.

"The landowner interest in our project has been immense, especially with our recently announced intrastate public offering," says Pete Karlsson, a local project field specialist. "Most landowners who have granted Dakota Wind Energy wind-related rights are choosing to become owners in the project company. Everyone involved in this development is extremely dedicated to creating a project that gives landowners the opportunity for potential long-term ownership benefits."

The local project field specialists in the area - Karlsson, Charlie Kraemer and Brian Stuart - will continue working with landowners on a frequent basis. Dakota Wind Energy hopes to build its first project phase in the next three to five years.
