April 22 (Renewables Now) - Chicago-based Invenergy is working on a project calling for the construction of a 200-MW wind park in northwestern Iowa, Radio Iowa reported last week.
According to Alan Lucken, Plymouth County Zoning Administrator, Invenergy plans to erect between 80 and 88 turbines in the eastern townships of Plymouth County. The machines will be 500 ft (152.4 metres) tall.
The company is now seeking easements from landowners and after all of them have been obtained, it will present the project for public input. By getting all easements, Invenergy will be able to secure a conditional use permit for the project. This will be decided by the Plymouth County’s Board of Adjustment.
Invenergy says on its website it has 93 wind assets with a combined capacity of 13,288 MW, five of which are located in Iowa but none of them is in Plymouth County.
