Wind Farm Planned For Lincoln County South Dakota

Wind Farm Planned For Lincoln County South Dakota

l

Lincoln and Minnehaha County Economic Development Associations in South Dakota have plans to start a new wind farm in 2018. Dakota Power Community Wind Board Chairman Paul Shubeck says the whole project hinges on the successful completion of  a transmission line from South of Chicago to near Lincoln County South Dakota. He says that’s set for completion five years down the road.

Shubeck says they also have to do a two year project gathering wind data and logging it and do environmental studies before they can proceed with building the wind farm. He says if they’re successful the possibility of return is huge.

Dakota Power Community Wind Group consists of community leaders and landowners. Their project could create more than a thousand temporary construction jobs and up to 70 full time positions.
