Fighting the wind – Proposed wind farm draws opponents  

LINDSBORG — Three opponents of large-scale wind farms explained their reasons Tuesday night in Lindsborg to a group of about 50 people.

A Spanish company, Gamesa Energy, proposed in April building 50 windmills, each close to 400 feet tall, in rural McPherson County to generate electricity. In recent months, two other such wind farms, one near Montezuma in southwest Kansas, and one near Beaumont in southeast Kansas, have been completed, and at least a dozen others are proposed around the state.<p><div><div>Because of opposition, McPherson County commissioners in August put a 180-day moratorium on development of wind farms in the county to give them more time to study the issue. For more on this story, see Wednesday’s Salina Journal.
