February 2007 - A new 5-MW wind project planned for the city of Rock Port, Missouri will provide enough electricity to meet 100% of the city's needs. The Loess Hills Wind Farm will consist of four Suzlon 1.25-MW turbines and will be directly connected to the city's electric distribution system. The Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission, the joint action agency serving Rock Port and 55 other municipalities, has entered into a contract with developer Wind Capital Group for the wind project output. John Deere Wind Energy is providing the wind turbines and financing for the project.
