Construction of a $115 million wind farm in southeastern South Dakota is being delayed because of investors' uncertainty about a federal wind energy production tax credit.
Roland Jurgens with Minnesota-based Carstensen Energy says the project near Tripp is not dead. He says he still expects the first 22 turbines to be built by the end of the year, with 21 more done early next year.
Worker William Douglas, of Brandon, said that he isn't holding out hope. He says he's given up on the project.
The tax credit expired at the end of last year, though projects that started before that might still qualify. Jurgens says investors in the project near Tripp are waiting for the Internal Revenue Service to determine which projects qualify.
