Wind Project Heading To Dodge City

KSCB News - July 23, 2013 8:33 am

Kansas may be getting another wind farm. The Bloom Wind Power Project would be about 20 miles south of Dodge City.
Norvento USA has filed a conditional use permit for the project. The site consists of approximately 11,500 acres in Ford and Clark counties and involves contracts with 32 landowners.
CEO Bill Behling says the 60-turbine project would produce up to 180 megawatts, enough energy to power 70,000 homes.
The Ford County zoning board will issue its recommendations in a public hearing next week. Final approval would come from the Ford County Commission in August. If approved, the project could begin producing energy in late 2015.
