The state Public Service Commission this week approved construction of a 112.5-megawatt wind energy farm in Sheldon, Wyoming County.
The project is being developed by Sheldon Energy LLC and will involve 75 wind turbines, plus 20 miles of access roads, overhead and underground electrical lines and a central operations and maintenance facility.
According to the state agency, the wind turbines will range in height up to 397 feet, with a rotor diameter of approximately 253 to 271 feet. The project is to begin operation near the end of 2008.
Sheldon Energy is a subsidary of Chicago-based Invenergy Wind LLC.
