Minneapolis-based National Wind LLC has announced its partnership with landowners in Sedgwick, Phillips and Logan counties, Colo., to form and capitalize Northeast Colorado (NECO) Wind LLC, and will construct 400 MW or more of wind energy generation facilities under the management of National Wind.

NECO Wind has also formed an advisory board composed of area landowners. The advisory board plays an integral role in the development process, acting as a liaison between the community and NECO Wind. To provide further community contact, NECO Wind has opened an office in Julesburg and hired local field specialists, Janan "JJ" Jones, Kirsten Muncy and Jerry Keintz, to work with landowners to inform them about the wind project.

"In addition to working to keep potential financial benefits local, we strive to maintain open communication and landowner representation as core components of the community model," says Pat Pelstring, co-chair of National Wind. "Northeast Colorado landowners will help guide the development process through regular advisory board meetings, landowner forums and other discussions."
