State regulators today approved We Energies’ plans to construct 88 wind turbines in Fond du Lac County.
The project is expected to cost the utility’s ratepayers nearly 400 (M) million dollars.
The Blue Sky Green Field wind farm will be built in the towns of Calumet and Marshfield, just east of Lake Winnebago. It will generate enough power to supply 45,000 homes.
The Public Service Commission says the wind farm will help We Energies comply with a state law that requires ten percent of the state’s energy supply to come from renewable energy sources by 2015.
