SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — Officials with a planned community wind farm in southeastern South Dakota say they have raised more than $1 million.

Dakota Power Community Wind has a goal of raising $1.5 million. The group of local landowners hopes to begin development of the project this fall.

Group spokesman Paul Shubeck says fundraising efforts should wrap up in the next few weeks.

Officials say there are 24,000 acres committed to the project, which is enough land to support a 300 megawatt farm.
