A spokesperson for NextEra Energy Resources, a Florida-based company, confirmed recently that a study is currently under way to see if wind turbines would be feasible in Mason County,

Mary Wells of NextEra said the study is in the very early stages and could or could not lead to the placement of wind turbines in Mason County. At least two test meteorological towers have been placed locally to test wind resources, Wells said. She said she wasn’t sure of the location of the test towers but did say it takes at least a year of testing before a decision is made on the viability of a site, based on the results.

“It’s very early in the process, ” Wells said. If the sites prove there are enough wind resources for the turbines, then it would take several years before the devices were placed and in operation, she said.
