CONGERVILLE – A majority of a 100-turbine wind farm northwest of Bloomington will be built in McLean County.
But up to 20 turbines could be constructed in Kansas Township in Woodford County, located about four miles east of Congerville and three miles north of Carlock.
The county’s conservation, planning and zoning committee will host the first public hearing on the Woodford County portion of the wind farm development at 6 p.m. Monday at Congerville Grade School on U. S. Route 150.
The entire project, developed by Chicago-based Invenergy Wind LLC, is expected to encompass 12,000 acres west of Interstate 39 and north of Interstate 74 between Hudson and Carlock.
