Wind Capital Group
Since its foundation in 2005, Wind Capital Group has developed and constructed the only five operational wind farms in the State of Missouri, totalling 312 megawatts (MW), and in November 2012, commissioned its 201 MW Post Rock wind energy facility in Kansas.
The Company is committed to harnessing a clean, renewable source of energy - creating jobs, generating economic opportunity and building a strong foundation for domestic energy independence. Wind Capital Group’s model is built on forming responsible partnerships with the communities in which it operates and providing long-term value for its investors. It considers the local communities around its projects to be the key foundation of a successful development and place a great emphasis on community relations and cooperation with farmers, ranchers, landowners and local leaders. The company developed America’s first 100% wind-powered community in Rock Port, Missouri.
In March 2012, NTR announced that it had increased its shareholding in Wind Capital Group from 62% to 97%.
