RUGBY, N.D. (AP) — Officials on Tuesday are dedicating a wind farm near Rugby.

Iberdrola Renewables developed the project, which includes 71 turbines and is capable of generating up to 149 megawatts of electricity. That's enough to power about 45,000 homes.

Officials say the wind farm is the base for 17 full-time jobs and generates about $2 million annually in landowner lease payments and property taxes.
