New wind farm proposed in western Day County


GROTON, S.D. (AP) – Florida-based NextEra Energy is developing plans for a 41-turbine wind farm in western Day County.

Spokeswoman Tara Tyson says the company still needs to go through the local and state permitting process for the 99-megawatt project.

NextEra hopes to have the wind farm operating by 2019 on private land between Bristol and Andover.

A public meeting on the project is scheduled Feb. 8 at the Groton Community Center.
