NextEra Energy Resources is still considering a wind farm project in Washington County, but the wind farm company is still gathering information.

“We are in the early stages of developing a wind project in the area,” said senior communication specialist Conlan Kennedy. “We are evaluating both Republic and Washington Counties for this project, but we have not finalized an exact location at this time. We are currently assessing the land and wind resources in the area and speaking with community leaders about the potential project. We intend to reach out to landowners with more information soon. The environmental studies we conduct are proprietary and part of the due diligence we use to evaluate whether a site is suitable to host a renewable energy project.”

Contracts have now expired for some landowners who signed up land several years ago to be considered for the project.
