Phone: (303) 384-6962

The second in a series of Webcasts sponsored by Wind Powering America with the purpose of reaching out to the agricultural community. The presentation lasted approximately 1 hour and was followed by a half hour available for questions and answers.

The topic of this Webcast is "Wind Farming" and was presented by David Kolsrud. David Kolsrud has over 13 years of experience in renewable energy and is well recognized nationwide. He has helped to develop, organize, and fund over 20 renewable energy projects — primarily ethanol, biodiesel, and wind projects. In 2006, he formed DAK Renewable Energy, which manages 11 LLCs with investments in multiple renewable projects. David's thesis has been that community ownership of biofuels plants has had a significant positive benefit which can be repeated or enhanced using wind energy. He talked about wind farming — some of the steps from conception to completion.
