"In re-entering the wind energy business in the U.S., NTR is delighted to partner with WCG [given] their unique business model focusing on local partnerships in rural communities," says Jim Barry, CEO of NTR. "Their rapid growth and early success is a testament to the strength of their business model. NTR is excited to be involved at this early stage in taking the business forward to the next level."
