Midwest Wind Energy Project Coordinator Patrick Dalseth held a preliminary meeting with Boone County Commissioners on Monday, Aug. 31, to discuss plans for the wind field near Petersburg.
Dalseth discussed various aspects of the Loredo Ridge Wind Farm project, including zoning matters, roads agreements, decommissioning plan, various environmental studies already underway and a general schedule for the project.
He noted that Nebraska Public Power District will be building a new substation across Highway 32 from its present substation east of Petersburg. This work could begin in the fall.
