First Wind also donated $2,000 to the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers for their effort to restore the historic Beaver County Courthouse in Beaver, Utah. The museum contains historical artifacts from the 1840s through World War II. First Wind’s donation will be used to purchase a reception desk and display cases.
Peter Sullivan, First Wind Director of Development said, “The city of Milford has been a great friend and a tremendous partner for the company, so we’re pleased to help the citizens of Milford celebrate our nation’s independence. We’re proud to be a part of Milford and Beaver County and we are glad we can help with these projects that are important to the community," he said.
