The Trimont Wind Farm, located north of Jackson, MN, has forty-three landowners in the area partnered with Iberdrola Renewables and Great River Energy. The project is built on 8,900 acres of corn and soy fields in Martin and Jackson counties. It’s important to note that only 1 to 2 percent of those 8,900 acres is impacted by the facility. Underneath the 67 wind turbines, the harvesting of corn and soybeans proceeds as usual.  

"After almost three years of planning and development, it is wonderful to see the project up and running," said Neal VonOhlen, chief manager of the Trimont Area Wind Farm (TAWF) and a local landowner, "and it is gratifying to know that we are providing clean energy for our fellow Minnesotans."

The project is equipped with 67 General Electric (GE Wind) 1.5 MW turbines. Each turbine is 262 feet high at the tower’s hub, from which rotors 254 feet in diameter spin. The total capacity of the 67 turbines is 100 MW of wind energy annually.

The 100-MW Elm Creek Wind Power Project is located near the Trimont Area Wind Farm in Trimont, Minnesota. Elm Creek provides electricity to more than 29,000 homes served by Great River Energy member cooperatives. The project encompasses about 9,554 acres of land leased from 56 local corn and soybean farmers. The land continues to be used for corn and soybean farming.

The project is equipped with 66 General Electric (GE Wind) 1.5 megawatt wind turbines. Each turbine is 384 feet high at the tower’s hub, from which rotors 253 feet in diameter spin. Iberdrola Renewables owns and operates the Elm Creek Wind Farm.
