John Mitola, President of Juhl, commented, "Our second quarter results are the first to demonstrate the impact of wrapping our development business with a strong foundation of wind farm ownership and operation. In addition the expansion of our advisory business with our acquisition of PEC underscores the strength of our strategy to become a more diversified clean energy company." "While our core business will always center upon wind power development, ownership and operation, we have made great progress toward making a very natural progression into all forms of complementary clean energy. We are confident that all of our operating divisions can work extremely well together by drawing from our core development skills while we move into other clean energy assets. We plan to take similar steps in the latter half of 2012."
