Wind energy forums broadcast in nine cities  

Nine cities will host public forums this summer in a series of statewide video conferences on wind energy potential in Missouri.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Energy Center will hold three discussions, and attendees in each city will be able to participate via video. The cities are Springfield, St. Louis, Columbia, Jefferson City, Kansas City, Kirksville, Maryville, Neosho and St. Joseph.

The first forum is titled “Harvesting Missouri Wind Resources” and will be held 5–9 p.m. June 25 via video in each city. It will look at the wind energy industry and how to get electricity to where it is needed, according to a news release.

The second forum is titled “Community and State Economic Impacts” and will be held 5–9 p.m. Aug. 6. It will deal with issues that landowners should know about before signing a lease and the impact wind energy development has on state and local economies.

The third forum is called “Wind Energy Action Options” and will be held 5–9 p.m. Sept. 15. It will look at what is needed for wind energy to best meet Missouri’s needs.

Each forum will include expert presentations, a panel discussion and roundtable discussion groups.

There is no cost to attend, but seating at each location is limited and registration is required. Visit DNR’s Web site to register. The forums also can be viewed online.
