Attorney General Lori Swanson on Wednesday asked a judge to shut down a wind energy development company accused of failing to keep its promises to dozens of Minnesota farmers.

The company, Renewable Energy SD, was named in a lawsuit Swanson filed last month on behalf of farmers who said their small-scale wind turbines malfunctioned and were not fixed by the company.

Wednesday's court action seeks to stop Renewable Energy SD from making any new sales of wind energy projects and force the company to account for the funds it has received from customers on existing projects.
