Commissioners approve road work for new wind farm

Boone County Commissioners approved a road agreement for a portion of the new Prairie Breeze II wind farm in the northeast portion of the county during their Feb. 25 regular meeting.
A total of 14 wind turbines will be located in Boone County as part of the 41-turbine Prairie Breeze II Wind Energy Center, according to Martin Conroy, who presented materials to the commissioners.
Invenergy is planning to locate the 73 megawatt wind farm on about 15,000 acres of private land in Antelope and Boone counties.
