Plum Creek Wind Farm

PROJECT HISTORY

The Plum Creek Wind Farm was originated in mid-2016 with initial conversations with local landowners to gauge the interest of the local community. In the past, wind development had been limited in the Plum Creek Wind Farm area due to limited transmission. However, recent new transmission additions have made wind energy development favorable. Geronimo Energy has a successful history in developing wind farms and boosting local economies in the Plum Creek Wind Farm region and is proposing to do the same for the Plum Creek Wind Farm community by building on existing local relationships. Geronimo has a local office in nearby Windom, Minnesota and has engaged the local community to build support for the project.

PLUM CREEK WIND FARM

The Plum Creek Wind Farm is located in the wind-rich region of southwest Minnesota, between the towns of Westbrook and Walnut Grove. The average wind speed, measured at 80 meters, is 8.4 meters per second, which is just under 18.8 miles per hour. The prevailing wind direction is from the northwest and south.
