The Two Dot Wind Project has been completed. The project is located in Two Dot, Montana, and the wind farm is owned by NJR Clean Energy Ventures, an unregulated clean energy subsidiary of New Jersey Resources). The 9.73 megawatt project is the company’s first onshore wind project, which was energized earlier this month. The energy produced will be sold to NorthWestern Energy under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
Mortenson Construction was responsible for the design and construction of access roads, foundations, erection, underground electrical collection system and a 100kV substation interconnecting into an adjacent Northwestern Energy transmission line. The Two Dot wind farm is the fifth wind farm the renewable energy contractor has built in the state to date and its 135th wind project constructed since 1995.
“We are very pleased to support NJR’s entry into the wind industry and to be part of the expansion of their renewable energy portfolio,” said Tim Maag, VP and general manager of Mortenson’s Wind Energy Group. “We value our new partnership and their commitment to furthering the growth of our industry.”
Mortenson will begin construction on their second project for NJR, the Carroll County wind farm, located in Iowa in late summer.
