Two new wind projects could give a substantial boost to the renewable energy supply in Wisconsin. Dairyland Power Cooperative, based in La Crosse, will buy power from a 98-megawatt wind farm to be built in southwest Wisconsin. WPPI Energy, Sun Prairie, wants to add 100 megawatts of electricity from wind power or another renewable resource.
Dairyland has signed an agreement with EDP Renewables North America, which will develop and operate the planned Quilt Block Wind Farm, 20 miles southeast of Platteville in Lafayette County.
