Winona County approves Gundersen Lutheran’s two commercial wind turbines

The Winona County Board of Commissioners approved plans Tuesday for Gundersen Lutheran to construct two wind turbines just north of Lewiston, Minn.

In 2010, Gundersen Lutheran sought a permit to construct three turbines as part of their “Envision,” program, which works toward energy independence and green initiatives, and eventually modified the project to two turbines.

“We hope that the turbines will result in energy produced locally in our region,” said Jeff Rich, executive director of G.L. Envision, the energy subsidiary for Gundersen Lutheran.

Energy generated by the turbines will go through an electrical grid that powers area homes and businesses. Rich said the turbines will provide energy for the equivalent of 1,400 homes.

Gundersen Lutheran will begin laying foundations for the turbines as early as this week. The turbines are scheduled to be delivered to the site the first week of October, and are expected to be operational by the end of November.
