Trishe Resources Inc. asked the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission on Sept. 15 for the transfer of a 2011 site permit for a Large Wind Energy Conversion System to its name.
The site permit, originally issued to Lake Country Wind Energy LLC (LCWE), authorized the construction of a 41-MW wind farm in Kandiyohi and Meeker counties, Minnesota. In June 2013, the MPUC approved an extension of the site permit.
Trishe’s wholly owned subsidiary, Trishe Wind Minnesota LLC, is the operative entity to hold the permits formerly held by LCWE. Trishe was awarded the LCWE assets by a bankruptcy court on July 24, 2014. “By operation of the United States bankruptcy laws, Trishe now holds title to LCWE’s assets,” the company told the commission.
With this application, Trishe and Trishe Wind Minnesota jointly are seeking commission recognition/approval that the LCWE site permit is now lawfully held by Trishe.
Trishe said it plans to construct the wind farm in the manner set forth in the LCWE site permit. Its project manager is the same project manager who led the site permit process for LCWE, William Cooksey.
