Wind farm proposed in Marshall Co
01/07/2020

(KMZA)--A Florida-based company is proposing a wind farm in southeastern Marshall County.

NextEra Energy Resources is proposing to construct the 300-megawatt wind project directly south of Frankfort and Vermillion.

The wind farm would contain about 108 turbines.

The Marysville Advocate reports the company has already begun moving ahead with securing land for the project.

The company touts its investment in the county as $50 million in landowner payments for the 30-year life of the project, and $40 million in tax revenues.

The initial construction will employ 250 to 300 people, and 12 jobs will remain permanent for the life of the project.

The company plans to hold forums to explain the project to residents.

NextEra has wind projects in 33 states and four Canadian provinces. The Soldier Creek Wind Farm, to be built in southern Nemaha County is among their latest projects.
