MILAN -- Minnesota's first wind turbine intended to both produce electricity and promote a community bank is a step closer to reality.

After lengthy delays, the tower that will hold a 20 kilowatt, made-in-Minnesota Jacob's wind turbine arrived this week at the site where it will be erected. It was assembled at the site, but it will not be erected until a future date, according to Erik Thompson, president of Prairie Sun Bank, Milan.

The tower is located one mile north of Milan, on the east side of Minnesota Highway 7 near the railroad bypass.

When it is erected, the tower will carry the bank's logo: "Powering a Renewal of our Communities.''
