KIRKSVILLE, MO (2010-12-01) Northwest Missouri has often been called the "Saudi Arabia" of Missouri's wind production efforts.
Now, the same company that built the state's first commercial wind farm here is setting its sights on the north east corner of the state. The wind capital group will be at a public meeting in Kirksville for a proposed wind farm near the town of Queen City, that is about 20 minutes from the Iowa border. State officials say landowner meetings have already taken place, but the public meeting is a chance for wind capital to explain the project and its possible impact on the environment and wildlife in the area. Around 30 wind turbines are being proposed for the sight, which is being called the "High Prairie" wind energy facility. Wind capital group has built wind farms around the King City, Conception, and Mound City areas and is investigating more in our region. The public meeting for the proposed north east Missouri farm will be next Tuesday night from 5 to 7 at the Days Inn convention center in Kirksville.
