Danish company tipped for 11.25 MW project

Northern Alternative Energy has chosen Danish Vestas 660 kW turbines for an 11.25 MW project it is developing for Madison Gas & Electric (MG&E) in Wisconsin. NAE had previously said it was looking at NEG Micon machines (Windpower Monthly, November 1997). The power is to be generated for a green pricing program to be launched by the utility. NAE and MG&E hope the 17 Vestas 47 units will be installed near Stockbridge, on the shore of Lake Winnebago in eastern Wisconsin. The wind plant, first announced by NAE on October 6, is to be fully operating by mid-1999, when the federal Production Tax Credits for wind power are currently due to expire. NAE, based in Minneapolis, has said that the project could ultimately be expanded to 50 MW if there is enough demand for the "green pricing" scheme. MG&E will own the first 11 MW of capacity. MG&E's interest in wind was boosted by the response from its customers when it previously offered wind generated electricity in a pilot green pricing program. That wind was from the utility's share of a 1.2 MW wind farm at De Pere in northeastern Wisconsin.
