WEST LIBERTY, Iowa – Bluestem Energy Solutions, an Omaha, Neb., based energy development company, is developing a renewable energy project for the City of West Liberty. Bluestem Energy Solutions is assessing the feasibility of a two wind turbine farm interconnected directly to the city’s electric distribution system.
If the project would move forward the energy produced would be consumed by the City of West Liberty rate payers. This development would be a multimillion dollar investment into the county, create construction opportunities for local companies, and increase the economic activity of the area through new tax revenue and landowner payments.
Bluestem is actively working to obtain all of the required permits and approvals for this development.
Before the end of the year, BES will be performing preliminary dirt work at one of the foundation sites. Once all contracts are negotiated with the City of West Liberty and all of the necessary permits and zoning approvals are in place, only then would the project move into the final construction phases.
