Milwaukee-based We Energies has filed an application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) for authorization to build the Glacier Hills Wind Park. The proposed wind park would be located in the towns of Randolph and Scott in northeast Columbia County.

Current plans call for the project to consist of up to 90 wind turbines that would generate as much as 207 MW of electricity. The cost of the project is expected to be in the range of $340 million to $530 million depending, in part, on the size of the turbines selected.

The PSCW review is expected to take from six months to a year. Because the actual construction and commercial operation dates are dependent on approval from the PSCW and the availability of turbine equipment, the first full year of commercial operation is expected to be 2012.
