"We want to develop a wind project for Big Stone County in which the community is a principal benefactor," says Brent Olson, board member of both Big Stone Wind and Little Rock Wind's project companies. "This transaction will assure the community wind development efforts we initiated will continue forward under Little Rock Wind's community model.
