National Wind LLC and Norfolk Wind Energy LLC are planning a new community wind project in Renville County, Minn. National Wind will act as the project manager for Norfolk Wind Energy and will assist in the development of 40 MW of community-based wind power in central Minnesota, with the opportunity to expand the project.

"For over two years, we've worked on this project and have envisioned putting up commercial-scale wind turbines in Renville County," says David Scheibel of Norfolk Wind Energy. "We're excited that National Wind can help make this dream a reality while, at the same time, keeping it a community-based project with a high level of local involvement."

National Wind will participate in a joint development effort with original members of Norfolk Wind Energy and additional Norfolk community members. A board has been established with representation from original landowners involved in Norfolk Wind Energy and National Wind. The role of the board will be to guide the wind energy development process to ensure that the community's voice is heard through regular meetings and votes on important issues.
