ALLETE Clean Energy is an independent power producer established in 2011 with headquarters in Duluth, Minnesota. ALLETE Clean Energy, through subsidiaries, owns, operates and has built and sold wind farms in seven states with more than 1,450 megawatts of capacity.
ALLETE Clean Energy is developing the Whitetail wind project in Clifton and Wingville townships in Grant County, Wisconsin. Before and during construction, we will host landowner meetings to keep participants apprised of the project’s development schedule, milestones, and projected construction dates.
Leased land allows the landowner to optimize land use. A small portion of the leased land is needed for siting turbines and development of access roads intended for mutual use. The remaining land continues to be available for landowner use, such as farming or grazing. This dual use provides additional annual income to landowners.
The Whitetail project will provide direct community benefits through jobs, local business investment, property taxes and other contributions. We value the communities where we live and work, and we look forward to forging partnerships with landowners and the communities near the Whitetail project.
More than 80 studies worldwide have been conducted about wind turbine exposure and health, and to date, the credible, scientific peer-reviewed literature does not support evidence of adverse health effects resulting from wind turbine exposure. There are a number of resources available on the American Clean Power Association website at https://cleanpower.org/resources/types/fact-sheets/.
