Invenergy’s proposed 200-MW Freeborn Wind Project in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa took another step forward with a presentation to the city council of Albert Lea, Minnesota, KTTC reported.

During the presentation, consultant Mariah Lynne said a permit application has been submitted to the Minnesota Public Utility Commission with a final decision expected in June.

Invenergy currently expects construction to begin in mid-2020 with operations by the end of that year.

The company originally announced the development in 2016.
