Juhl Wind earns $1.4 million grant for the Winona County Wind Project

Woodstock, Minn., January 4, 2012 — Juhl Wind Inc. announced the receipt of about $1,413,000 in funds for its recently completed $4.8 million Winona County Wind Project in Winona County, Minn.

The grant was issued by the U.S. Treasury Department in accordance with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The proceeds of the grant primarily went toward payment of construction costs for the project, now owned by the company's Juhl Renewable Assets Inc. subsidiary.

The Winona County Wind project was completed and put into commercial operation in the fourth quarter 2011. It is one of six wind farm projects that Juhl Wind has completed in the past 24 months, together these properties represent over $150 million in project development.

The site will use two Unison, direct-drive wind turbine generators — a technology based on a gearless system. The project was developed and constructed by Juhl Energy Development Inc., a unit of Juhl Wind Inc., with initial project participation by the Winona County Economic Development Authority.
