‘It all sounds positive’; Wind developer says it may lease more land here than first planned

County commissioners learned a tantalizing piece of information in a phone call Monday morning with the development manager of a proposed wind farm in Republic and Washington counties.

Sam Massey, development manager in Kansas for NextEra Energy, told the board the company has 40,000 acres under lease, and another 13,000 acres near agreement.

“But they also said they may be able to get up to 100,000 acres leased between the two counties, best case scenario,” said Luke Mahin, Republic County economic development director. “Most 200 megawatt wind farms are situated on about 40,000 acres, so that means they could be thinking a bigger project for this area.”

Commissioners said NextEra’s land acquisition efforts are equally divided between Republic and Washington counties, and that leasing agents are having a hard time keeping up with finalizing contracts.
