COSMOS  (AP) – One of the largest community wind power developments in Minnesota has celebrated its grand opening.

The project near the central Minnesota town of Cosmos is made up of two wind farms owned by separate local groups: Adams Wind Generations, LLC and Danielson Wind Farms, LLC. They were formed by neighbors, friends and farmers who saw it as another way to use their land to generate income.

The two groups collaborated by using the same wind developer, turbine manufacturer, general contractors, attorneys and finance teams. The 24 turbines at these two sites will generate 40 megawatts of power, enough to power 10,000 to 12,000 homes.

They held an open house on Wednesday in Cosmos, which is 17 miles west of Hutchinson.
