E Wind gets approval for 18-turbine project

E Wind LLC, Columbus, Wis., has received approval to proceed with its 30-megawatt, 18-turbine wind project in Wisconsin, according to a report from North American Windpower.

The company received approval from the town of Randolph, through a joint development agreement, which was contingent on approval of the Glacier Hills Wind Farm project by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission.

E Wind is made up of three partners who worked with landowners to lease property rights for the wind turbines, the report said. The company installed a wind measurement tower and also worked with transmission owners to study connection possibilities.

E Wind plans to acquire a power purchase agreement from a utility, and expects to begin construction in time to receive Treasury Department cash grants for renewable energy projects, the report said.
