Lake Country Wind Energy, LLC plans to develop one or more wind projects in Meeker and Kandiyohi Counties, Minnesota. By harnessing the wind energy in the area, Lake Country Wind Energy hopes to generate up to 340 megawatts (MW) of clean, environmentally friendly, low-cost electricity.
In addition to creating sustainable and environmentally responsible power, Lake Country Wind Energy also follows a model of community-based development. Local landowners have the opportunity to get involved in the project. A primary goal of any and all Lake Country wind developments will be to ensure that the local community enjoys the majority of the economic benefits of the projects. The focus on local economic development reflects yet another layer of the company's commitment to sustainability.
