DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) —Economic development officials in Devils Lake say a Napoleon-based company is exploring a possible wind farm in Ramsey County.

Forward Devils Lake director Chris Schilken says Just Wind LLC is only in the beginning stages, and wants to gauge the interest of landowners in hosting wind turbines on their property. A public meeting is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Lake Region State College auditorium.

Schilken says nearby Cavalier and Pierce counties have seen wind farm developments, and he thinks the Devils Lake area also would be a good fit.

Schilken says the company also has been involved in helping Lake Region State set up its new wind energy technician training program.
