Portland, Ore.-based Iberdrola Renewables has announced that construction is under way on the 50 MW Buffalo Ridge Wind Power Project near White, S.D. The project, expected to be complete in 2009, is contingent upon passage of the production tax credit.

"The construction of yet another large-scale wind energy project in Brookings County by Iberdrola Renewables represents South Dakota's willingness to be a significant contributor to a new energy economy that lessens our dependence on foreign oil and enhances our national security," says Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D. "Not only will Brookings County benefit from the economic development and jobs that accompany this new project, but customers in Indiana will gain from utilizing this clean, renewable source of energy that symbolizes the future of our country's energy economy."

The power generated from this South Dakota wind farm will be purchased by Northern Indiana Public Service Co., serving more than 445,000 electric customers across the northern third of Indiana. The Buffalo Ridge Wind Power Project will include 50 Suzlon turbines. As with the MinnDakota wind project, Iberdrola Renewables will build and operate the new wind farm.
