The land is mainly used to grow corn and soybeans, and the Little Sioux River runs along the east side of the project area. Lost Lakes Wind Farm includes farmland in the Lakeville, Okoboji, Excelsior, and West Port townships.
Lost Lakes Wind Farm yields significantly in the form of payments to landowners, local spending, and annual community investment. Lost Lakes Wind Farm is also compatible with other land uses and provides a stable form of income to local landowners.
