The President of Windland, Roald Doskeland, spent his early years working on the family farm in Norway. To this day, the values of a farmer have carried forward into his company. Environmental stewardship, hard work, fair dealings, and a desire to see the “Big picture” are just a few of the principles exemplified at Windland.
Windland understands that for many farmers and ranchers, the land is their livelihood and that, at times, the agricultural industry can be marginal. Wind energy can add an additional source of income and stability to a farming / ranching operation, which can enable a landowner to maintain an agricultural lifestyle.
Because of its company structure and expertise, Windland is in the unique position to create lease agreements tailored to landowners’ needs. If the land is not part of a farming operation, Windland may consider purchasing the land. We are also able to provide landowners investment / ownership opportunities if they so desire.
At Windland, we practice sustainable development. We take a comprehensive stance on environmental stewardship by conducting extensive wildlife tests for our projects. In fact, Windland has received the first approval from BLM for a large-scale commercial wind energy project on public lands in the US.
At the conclusion of a project, if a landowner desires to use the property for other purposes, the turbines are removed and sustainable industry practices are used to restore the area.
