Juhl Energy, Inc. Acquires "Embedded Generation" Wind Projects In New Brunswick, Canada

PIPESTONE, Minn., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Juhl Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: JUHL), the leader in Community Wind Power, today announced the recent acquisition of two wind energy projects located in western New Brunswick, Canada from Canadian developer Terravis Wind. The projects are being developed under NB Power's " Embedded Generation" program, which is designed to allow Independent Power Producers to sell electricity to the NB Power distribution system at a fixed, stable price and under a long-term contract. 

"The acquisition of the TerraRidge and TerraVista projects, each of which are 1.65 MW in size, represents our first two renewable energy projects that will be located outside of the United States," stated Corey Juhl, Vice President of Development for Juhl Energy, Inc.  "As we expand our reach throughout North America, Juhl is actively seeking to partner with and/or acquire mid-stage wind project developments that fit our current growth strategy."

"The NB Power Embedded Generation program is a perfect fit for what we are doing here at Juhl Energy," continued Juhl.  "To date, we've successfully developed and installed eight small, utility scale projects that have a nameplate capacity under five MW's.  As such, we understand the unique challenges that come with developing, constructing, and financing these smaller sized projects.  Given our experience, we believe we are well-positioned to take advantage of this very large sector in the wind energy marketplace."

The two projects have successfully secured Interconnection and Power Purchase Agreements with NB Power and are currently in the final stages of development. Juhl Energy expects to secure and finalize project financing by the third quarter of 2013 and to commence on-site construction activities by the fourth quarter of 2013.
