GL Wind LLC is a community wind partnership made up of Gundersen Lutheran Hospital and a local investment partner. Juhl Wind has been working with GL Wind LLC for the past year and a half to move the project through the various development stages in order to get to the construction phase. The GL Wind system will utilize two Clipper Windpower C96 wind turbines with a nameplate capacity of 2.5 MWs each. The turbines will be operated at a combined capacity of 4.95 MW in order to meet distributed generation requirements established by MISO. Juhl is coordinating contractor activities, turbine supply and commissioning during the construction phase. Once completed, the GL Wind system is expected to generate approximately 14 million clean energy kWhs per year.
