The construction alliance will include the Boldt Company of Appleton, Michels of Brownsville and Edgerton Contractors of Oak Creek. The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin issued approval for the project in January this year.

Rick Kuester, executive vice president of Wisconsin Energy, said: “Developing the Glacier Hills Wind Park through this home-state construction alliance will benefit Wisconsin’s economy while achieving a low cost approach to generating more energy from renewable resources.

“The project will be built with the talents of these Wisconsin companies and local craft labor. Providing benefits to Wisconsin businesses is important to We Energies and to our customers.”

We Energies serves approximately 1.1 million electric customers in Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and approximately one million natural gas customers in Wisconsin.
