Midwest Wind Finance LLC, a Minneapolis-based firm that finances community-scale wind farms throughout the U.S., has introduced its Wind Renewable Fund (WRF).

According to the company, the fund was created to provide capital through short-term bridge financing for construction-ready wind projects. In addition, WRF will help secure supply agreements, Midwest says.

"Midwest Wind Finance has a goal to build the Wind Renewable Fund to $20 million to invest in securing turbines for dozens of community wind projects," says Ken Valley, Midwest's founder.
