BUFFALO RIDGE WIND
 

About the Project

Buffalo Ridge Wind is an innovative wind project proposed for Lincoln County in Minnesota that will have a capacity of approximately 109 megawatts of clean, renewable energy. The Buffalo Ridge Wind project is more than wind turbines - it represents a significant capital investment in Minnesota. Once operational, it will create good-paying jobs and provide millions in additional revenue for landowners and the local community.

It is a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, the world’s largest generator of renewable energy from the wind and the sun.
