Who owns the Little Rock Wind project?
Little Rock Wind will follow National Renewable Solutions' (NRS) approach to wind energy development, which is different from more traditional "corporate developers" in the wind industry. The fundamental distinction is that we include the local community in the project by creating opportunities for them to be owners of Little Rock Wind. We believe that landowners and the local community should share in both turbine leases and the potential revenues from a successful wind project.

150 megawatts of wind generation facilities will cost up to 300 million dollars to develop. The debt and equity financing for this development will likely come from large institutional investment sources. NRS has working relationships with many of these sources.
