National Wind LLC has formed Little Rock Wind LLC, its seventh Minnesota-based, community-owned wind energy company. The company has been formed in partnership with several Big Stone County community members, who formed a board of advisors that will work with National Wind to develop up to 150 MW of wind energy generation within the county.

Little Rock Wind will be holding a public landowner meeting on March 17 to introduce the project and its community wind development model to Big Stone County landowners. Landowners will have the chance to meet with Little Rock Wind's founding board members and National Wind's development team and learn how they can become involved.

"Little Rock Wind, as a locally owned wind energy company, is the sort of project that has the best interests of the landowners and farmer's best interests at heart," says Brent Olson, one of the founders and an advisory board member of Little Rock Wind.

Little Rock Wind recently opened an office in Ortonville, Minn., to better serve local landowners and to facilitate community involvement in the project. The office is located at 890 Pine Ave. in Ortonville.

National Wind's field specialist, Jesse Hopkins-Hoel, is working closely with the advisory board and area landowners to represent the project and to gain landowner participation. This includes helping landowners understand the economic benefits this development can provide. Little Rock Wind's projects are expected to be developed over the course of the next five to seven years.
