Now in a joint project with Renewable Energy Solutions and John Deere Wind Energy, workers at the plant are installing two wind turbines by March 1, 2007. The wind turbines will generate 4.2 megawatts of power that will replace 45 percent of the electricity used by the plant. They had a hard time finding turbines at a reasonable cost because of skyrocketing demand for wind power. This moves the plant a big step closer to energy self-sufficiency.
