County won't modify moratorium to allow Grain Belt project
03/16/2022

(KMZA)--The Nemaha County Commission has decided against modifying the current moratorium on wind energy projects in the county to allow the Grain Belt Express transmission line project.

Chicago-based Invenergy had requested the county exempt the project from the moratorium, which has been in place May 2019.

County Attorney Brad Lippert met with the commission Monday to discuss the request.

Representatives from Invenergy meet with the commission at their February 28 meeting to provide a project update.

The about 800-mile line is to deliver up to 4,000 megawatts of wind-generated power from southwest Kansas to eastern states. The line is to go through 14 Kansas Counties—including Brown, Doniphan, Marshall and Nemaha County.

There was no immediate word how Nemaha County's decision will impact the project.
