DODGE COUNTY WIND FARM

About the Project

The Dodge County Wind Farm is an innovative wind project proposed for Dodge and Steele Counties in Minnesota that will have a capacity of up to 170 megawatts of clean, renewable energy. The Dodge County 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.

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