An article by Brian Payneter in the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen:

BROWNSVILLE — Invenergy Wind LLC plans to have 86 turbines operating by May at the $250 million Forward Wind Energy Center.

Mick Baird, project manager for the Chicago-based firm, said General Electric has started commissioning and testing 34 turbines throughout the 50-square-mile project area in northern Dodge and southern Fond du Lac counties.

“We look forward to getting to the next step and providing renewable power to four state utilities,” he said.

Those companies — Wisconsin Power & Light Co. of Madison, Madison Gas & Electric Co. of Madison, Wisconsin Public Power Inc. of Sun Prairie and Wisconsin Public Service Corp. of Green Bay — have purchased a combined 129 megawatts of electricity.

Baird said each of the 86 turbines will provide enough power for about 350 to 500 homes.
