Another Wind Plant For Illinois

The News recently reported a 51-MW wind plant is planned for Tiskilwa, IL (Aug. 12, 2002, page 7). A $2.75 million grant from the state’s Renewable Energy Resources Trust Fund will now go toward developing a 50-MW wind facility in Mendota.

The Mendota Hills Wind Farm is expected to add $50 million to the local tax base and provide $130,000 in annual lease payments to area landowners, while generating enough power to meet the annual electricity needs of 15,000 households. The wind turbine installations are expected to begin in 2003.
