Wind farm gets go-ahead  

Longtime Greensburg resident and community leader Bob Mosier announced late Tuesday afternoon he’d just received word from Tom Fieler of Clipper Wind, Inc. that agreement has been reached between his firm and Westar Energy of Topeka to build a 105 megawatt electricity-generating wind farm on the same site south of Mullinville previously considered by KCP&L for a similar facility in 2005. That contract was eventually awarded to a site surrounding the town of Spearville.

A total of 42 wind-generating towers, each standing nearly 200 feet in height, will be installed in southwestern Kiowa County, beginning in late 2008. Mosier said Fieler communicated Westar may dedicate a tower to supplying electricity to the City of Greensburg. That, and other details will need to ironed out before the signing of the contract, expected in late August.

Fieler had worked closely with Mosier and other interested Kiowa County residents for several years.
