Up To 71 More Wind Turbines Planned To Go Up In Jackson County

Tue 6-4-2019

(Jackson, Mn.)-- Already one of the leading counties for wind energy in Minnesota, Jackson County looks to grow some more.

Scout Clean Energy and Minnesota Municipal Power have entered into a purchase agreement to buy 200 megawatts of renewable energy from the Three Waters Wind Farm in the county.

The project calls for the installation of up to 71 wind turbines to be located across approximately 45,000 acres.

The project is expected to begin construction in 2021 with an anticipated in-service date of late 2021.

Project organizers say the agreement is an important step for the project and should bring economic benefits to Jackson County.
