We Energies recently filed a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) for authorisation to construct the Blue Sky Green Field Wind Project.
The proposed wind project will be located in the towns of Calumet and Marshfield in northeast Fond du Lac County. The wind project is being designed to generate up to 203MW of electricity. The project will consist of approximately 88 wind turbines with an installed cost of up to US$ 346 million, which includes allowance for funds used during construction. The PSCW approval timeframe varies depending on the size and complexity of the project, but may take six months to a year. Because the actual construction and commercial operation dates are dependent on approval from the PSCW and the availability of turbine equipment, commercial operation is anticipated to begin in 2007 or 2008.
