Letter: Wind energy company is an American firm

To the Editor:

Aries Power & Industrial thanks the Daily Chronicle for its interest in the wind farm project for which we were in Kirkland recently to discuss. However, we would like to clear up a couple of misconceptions in the article. 

First, Aries Power and Industrial is an American company, the American subsidiary of the Spanish company Aries Engineering and Systems. American contractors would likely be hired to build the wind farm if it comes to fruition, and American jobs would be created to service the wind turbines if they are built in DeKalb County.

Second, Nereo GreenCapital is the investor on the project. Aries does the development and engineering work on behalf of Nereo GreenCapital in the U.S. Although many of Nereo’s board members are in Europe, Nereo GreenCapital is an American company as well.
