GREAT FALLS (AP) — Construction of the state’s largest wind farm is scheduled to begin this spring 85 miles north of here, Spain-based developer Naturener said.
Naturener has chosen Mortenson Construction, based in Minnesota, as the general contractor.
In the first phase, 69 towers capable of producing
103-½ megawatts will be erected in Toole County. The second phase includes land in Glacier County.
Combined, the two phases will include 140 towers producing 210 megawatts. A single megawatt of wind power generates enough electricity for 250 to 300 homes.
The project is smaller than originally planned but will still be larger than the 135-megawatt Judith Gap Energy Center, the state’s sole utility-scale wind facility.
