The 160-MW Barton wind farm in Worth County, Iowa was placed in service in June, 2009. Under the terms of the agreement, Dairyland, which provides wholesale electricity to 24 members and 17 municipal utilities, will buy 80 MW of power from the project.
Dairyland said the agreement is the result of its participation in the National Renewable Cooperative Organization (NRCO).
“The strategic alliance with NRCO brings opportunities to all cooperative members through joint support of renewable energy projects,” said Dairyland VP of Strategic Planning, John Carr.
