Rock County gets wind farm

A 109-megawatt Walleye Wind farm has been approved for Rock County by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission. The wind project will include up to 40 turbines that will provide electricity to Minnesota Municipal Power Agency. Comissioner Joseph Sullivan said “this wind farm will continue to grow our carbon free energy sources that Minnesotans are asking for”.

The Walleye Wind project is expected to bring up to 185 jobs during construction and up to four full-time positions after construction is complete.
