Two meetings will be held next week to introduce a proposed Opheim wind energy project. Kyle Paulson of Compass Energies will discuss the project location, site evaluations, approvals required, infrastructure and the preliminary construction schedule.
The first meeting will be in the Opheim Town Hall on Monday, July 29, at 7:30 p.m. Another meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 30, at 7:30 p.m. at the Glasgow High School in Room 4.
Paulson will introduce Compass Energies, a Denver company described on its website as a “community-scale renewable energy developer.” He is the director of project development for Compass Energies.
The website says the company primarily focuses on utility-scale distributed generation projects in the 15-60 megawatt (MW) range.
Compass Energies’ first wind facility, a 25-turbine project in Judith Basin County near Geyser and Raynesford called Spion Kop, was sold to Northwestern Energy in November 2012. The facility can produce 40 MW of electricity.
