A renewable energy program is getting a financial boost from the Minnesota-based McKnight Foundation. Eight-million McKnight Foundation dollars will go to a renewable energy program in seven midwest states over the next three years. These dollars build on a three-year-old program called “Wind on the Wires,” designed to bring wind energy to market by improving and expanding the current power grid infrastructure. McKnight will work with the San Fransisco-based Energy Foundation to administer the program, which will focus primarily on wind energy in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, North and South Dakota.
