OTTAWA, ONTARIO October 17, 2013 Wind Works Power Corp. (OTC:WWPW - News)(WKN: A0RPM2) is pleased to announce it has secured the two required permits for its 150 megawatt (MW) Thunder Spirit project, located in North Dakota, in which it held a 75% interest, and, has exercised its option to acquire the remaining 25%.
The two principal permits required for Thunder Spirit are a siting permit from Adams County, granted on September 9, 2013; and a Certificate of Site Compatibility issued by the North Dakota Public Service Commission, which was issued on October 9, 2013.
An Interconnection Agreement was signed for 150MW with the Midcontinent Independent System Operator`s (MISO) power market in February 2012. Wind Works is currently working to secure a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for the Project.
“With the permitting now in place, as well as an Interconnect Agreement, we now only require a Power Purchase Agreement in order to secure financing and commence construction of our Thunder Spirit project,” comments Dr. Ingo Stuckmann, Wind Works President and CEO.
