Another wind power project is being announced for north-central Iowa. California-based EnXco plans to build a wind farm in southwest Hamilton County and will open an office in Stratford next week. EnXco spokeswoman Melissa Peterson says the landscape in the area will change in the next few years.
It’ll be around 200-megawatts in size or about 134 wind turbines, enough to power 60,000 to 70,000 homes. Peterson says the project will start in the next few years as EnXco officials meet with property owners in the area where the proposed wind turbines will be built.
She says construction won’t likely start until 2013 or ’14. EnXco was also responsible for building the wind turbines that dot a stretch of Interstate 35 near Williams.
