Dairyland and EDP Renewables Dedicate 98 MW Wind Farm

Dairyland and EDP Renewables (EDPR) celebrated the completion of the 98 MW Quilt Block Wind Farm at a joint dedication event in Darlington, Wis., on Friday, Nov. 10. A number of the wind farm’s stakeholders including landowners and government officials attended the event that featured several speeches, a ribbon cutting and a bus tour of the wind farm.

EDPR owns and operates the 98 MW Quilt Block Wind Farm, which is located in Lafayette County. Dairyland has a power purchase agreement in place with EDPR for the entire energy output of the wind farm that will produce enough clean electricity to power more than 25,000 households in Dairyland’s rural four-state service area.

“The Quilt Block Wind Farm is a key component of Dairyland’s strategic imperative of Resource Diversification,” said Barbara Nick, Dairyland President and CEO. “Thousands of homes in our cooperative system will be powered with safe and sustainable wind energy from Quilt Block for years to come.” >more
