From an article by Kathleen Gallagher in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

A little more than two years after it was founded, and a month after starting full-scale production, an Oshkosh manufacturing company expects to have as many as 30 of its wind turbines up and running for customers by the end of the year.

Renewegy LLC’s most recently-announced sale was to Menasha Corp.

Privately held Menasha plans to install five wind turbines to generate electricity for its offices in Neenah, along Highway 41. The five 20-kilowatt turbines stand 115 tall, about the height of a stadium light pole. The cost of the plan was not disclosed.

The project will be the largest wind installation at a business in northeastern Wisconsin, said Nancy Whitton, Menasha’s corporate communications director.

Other Wisconsin organizations that have turned to Renewegy for turbines include Orion Energy Systems Inc. in Manitowoc, SCA Tissue in the town of Menasha, Bergstrom Corp.’s new Mini Cooper dealership, Kaukauna High School and Neenah-based J. J. Keller.

Renewegy, which has 17 employees, also recently signed agreements with distributors in Iowa, Minnesota and Nebraska and is looking for more in other states, said Jeff Ehlers, the company’s president.
