National Wind LLC has announced the formation of Goodhue Wind LLC, a community wind development company in Goodhue County, Minnesota. National Wind, the project's manager, helped capitalize Goodhue Wind alongside local Goodhue County investors. Goodhue Wind intends to develop a 78 megawatt (MW) wind farm, which will supply energy to Midwestern utilities and ultimately to Midwestern homes and businesses.

"By focusing on local needs and local involvement, community projects form solid roots in the community and create strong local support. Community members really appreciate that, and utilities seem to value it as well." -- Jack Levi, Co-chairman, National Wind
