Wind energy developer pleads not guilty  

Wind energy developer Greg Jaunich pleaded not guilty Monday to federal charges that he overbilled Xcel Energy Inc. and the Minnesota Department of Commerce about $500,000 in 2003 and 2004 from two wind turbines his company owned in Minnesota’s Lincoln County.

A trial date is expected to be scheduled for next spring before U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson, according to a lawyer for Jaunich.

The government accused has Jaunich of bilking Xcel and the Commerce Department, which pays small wind developers a production incentive.

Jaunich’s lawyers have said the matter amounted to an administrative oversight by a busy developer who tried to settle a dispute that never should have become a federal felony charge.
