The Defense Department says a half-dozen
wind energy projects planned in Kansas would have little or no
effect on military missions.
The Pentagon issued a report Thursday on its review of 249
renewable energy projects in 35 states and Puerto Rico. The
department found no problems with 229 of the projects.
The report cleared all six of the Kansas wind projects reviewed.
They’re located in Cimarron, El Dorado (el doh-RAY’-doh), Ensign,
Lakin, Pratt and Ulysses.
Defense officials also said in the report that renewable
projects will help the U.S. maintain its energy security.
