Wind power moving forward


OLIVIA -- Yusef Orest spent Tuesday morning watching crews prepare the way for 12 wind towers to be erected on the open landscape south of Cosmos as part of the Adams Wind project.

Orest, with Juhl Wind of Woodstock, Minn., said the wind farm taking shape in Meeker County represents a $40 million investment. When completed, the wind farm will have the capacity to feed 19.8 megawatts of electricity to the community-owned wind venture's main customer, Xcel Energy.
