    Bluestem Energy Solutions (BES) will conduct a feasibility study to evaluate the potential for renewable energy development for the Village of Pleasant Prairie. As the municipality works to create more economic value and diversify their energy generation to increase resiliency.

    The BES study, for which Pleasant Prairie has no financial or contractual obligation, will include an analysis of the Municipal energy usage patterns and costs. That information and other data will then be used to assess the economic feasibility of renewable energy projects that will help reduce energy costs, create economic value, and increase resiliency.

    “Investing in renewable energy for the Village will enhance operations and modernize our systems” said Village Administrator Nathan Thiel, “We are eager for Bluestem to offer sustainable energy solutions for Village facilities.”

    If Village Trustees and BES determine a renewable energy project in Pleasant Prairie is realistic, development would proceed under a public-private partnership similar to what the company has done with public partners across the United States.

    Building local, renewable energy represents economic opportunities for the community in the form of construction jobs and economic development opportunities. A project like this would also help Pleasant Prairie meet the needs of local business with sustainability initiatives. As more companies continue to develop and execute their own sustainable energy goals, low-carbon energy resources are proving increasingly important in the site-selection process.

    “Bluestem is working in many states across the country and we have a good idea of which communities are situated for success when it comes to our business model,” BES Consultant Jake Griggs said. “We’re excited to partner with the Village of Pleasant Prairie as we work towards creating economic value for the Village and its residents.”

    BES is a developer, owner and operator of low  carbon energy generation facilities ranging in sizes and technologies. Located in Omaha, Nebraska, BES has been active in renewable energy generation across the country since 2009.
