Developers Consider Wind Farm In Haskell and Grant Counties

Grant County Commissioners will discuss the project Tuesday.
Tradewind Energy of Lenexa says the wind farm would generate enough electricity for 65,000 homes. The company has worked more
than three years to secure long-term leases for 40,000 acres in the two counties for 100 to 200 turbines.
Grant County Commission Chairwoman Linda McHenry says she expects the commission to approve the agreement. Haskell County approved the agreement Monday.
The developers say the size and timeline of the project would depend on finding utility companies to buy the wind farm’s energy output.
