A news release issued by WE Energies:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin regulators have scheduled 2 public hearings Nov. 4 on a proposal for a 90-turbine wind farm in Columbia County.

Wisconsin Electric Power Co., a subsidiary of Wisconsin Energy Corp., asked the state Public Service Commission in October 2008 for permission to build the Glacier Hills Wind Park. The 17,350-acre park would have the capacity to generate up to 207 megawatts of power and include access roads, an underground system to collect power from the turbines and a new substation to connect to the existing transmission system.

The PSC estimates the project could cost between $335 million and $413 million.
