To a comprehensive tour of a small-scale wind project

Wind energy is renewable and one of the fastest-growing sources of electrical generation in the world.

Byron Basics
  • There are two wind turbines at the Bryon site.
  • The Town of Byron was selected after extensive research determined that it was one of the best wind-generation sites in Wisconsin.
  • The site has wind speeds averaging 14 miles per hour.
  • The Byron turbines produce more than 3 million kilowatt-hours annually—enough to power 360 homes.
  • The total cost of the project was $1.6 million when built in 1999.

This investment in renewable energy resources was made possible by the We Energies customers who participate in the nationally recognized Energy for Tomorrow® renewable energy program. We Energies is grateful to the landowners, Cindy and Doug Decker, and the Town of Byron for their support of this project.
