“We are very excited to be working with the DNR we think this is a great opportunity both for you know folks that you know live in the areas of these projects as well as a great opportunity for the state the concept i think just makes sense of taking disturbed land that’s not being used and utilizing it for something good," said Circle Power CEO, Jordan Roberts.
Whitcomb says they hope to look at other sites across the state to try it again if the project is successful. The need is there and they are willing to help out if it fits in the mission of the department according to Whitcomb.
“We’re excited about it, this is new for DNR and we do think it’s consistent with the DNR mission,” said Whitomb. “You know we have a strong environmental protection and conservation mission and wise use of our resources including renewable energy we think fits in really well with that.”
