WINCHESTER, Ind. (AP) - A renewable energy company is planning to build a wind farm with up to 100 turbines in an eastern Indiana county.
The project is planned by EDP Renewables North America for a rural area south of the Randolph County city of Winchester. Company spokesman Adam Renz tells The Star Press that major construction work is expected to begin next spring on the project estimated to cost $350 million to $400 million.
The subsidiary of a Spanish company has an agreement with Indiana Michigan Power to buy electricity from the proposed Headwaters Wind Farm in the area about 25 miles east of Muncie.
Two other companies have gained the approval of Randolph County officials for wind farm projects there, while opponents in neighboring Delaware County are fighting proposed turbine construction.
