Nodaway County Clear Creek wind project details given

Details concerning a wind energy project in northern Nodaway County were released last night during an event held on the Northwest Missouri State University campus. Tenaska, an independent power producer based in Omaha, Neb. announced a long-term power purchase agreement with Associated Electric Cooperative, Incorporated, which is based in Springfield, Mo.

Tanaska President and Managing Director for Strategic Development Greg Kelly says the Nodaway County Clear Creek wind project came together quickly. He anticipates the project will result in increased tax revenue of more than $1.2 million to the Nodaway County tax base.

According to Vice-President of Member Services with Associated Electric Cooperative Joe Wilkerson, his organization sees a number of good reasons to purchase power generated from Tenaska's wind turbines in Nodaway County.

The project will be comprised of 100 to 120 wind turbines in northern Nodaway County with construction set to begin in 2019. The project will create more than 200 jobs at peak construction and up to 15 full-time jobs when operational.
