Dakota Power Community Wind, a group of Lincoln County South Dakota landowners are working to develop a wind project to connect with the Rock Island Clean Line, a 500 mile transmission line. The group has held five investor meetings so far and Thursday was in Yankton. Project Consultant Nick Sershon says if they’re able to raise between 1 and a half and 4 million dollars, it’ll be three to four years before they are able to begin construction.
Sershon says they’ve been pleased with the turnout and interest they’ve seen so far in the project.
Their next meeting will be June 24 at the Days Inn in Brookings at 2p.m. followed by a 7 pm meeting in Madison that night. Three other meetings will follow with the final one June 26 in Rapid City at the Holiday Inn. For more details go to dpcwind.com.
