Rollag, MN (WDAY TV) - People living in or around Rollag are now waking up to 260-foot wind turbines in their backyards.

The town is to be the center of a $75 million wind farm that will supply power to the regional power grid.

Right now, a portion of the 32-turbine project is already up, but not yet, on parking the first signs of the largest-scale wind farm in this part of Minnesota.

Trucks have been bringing in the rest since last month, leaving their parts across town.

And people here say although they're big, their purpose makes them more acceptable.

Julie Nelson- Rollag: “I think once they get used to it, me personally; obviously, we kind of live out in the country for a reason. Beautiful, nature, scenic, trees, and then, boom. You kind of see this industrial.”

This spot was chosen for its wind resource availability.
