Road work and other preparations are underway for the new wind farm to be built by Third Planet Windpower, LLC (TPW) east of Petersburg.
Steve Boyer of TPW met with Boone County Commissioners Monday, April 11, to discuss the project. He also presented a map of the 27 wind tower locations east of Petersburg. The towers will be generally within the first mile north of Highway 32, and the farm extends about six miles east of the NPPD substation.
Work has already begun on the construction staging area.
