Nemaha County construction

A crane lifts a nacelle in Nemaha County recently. NextEra Energy is building a windfarm near Corning while planning another in Marshall County.

Eleven years ago George Black, project developer for the Iowa-based RPMAccess, met with Marysville Rotary Club to discuss plans to build a 90-megawatt wind farm in Marshall County.

“The company put up a test tower southwest of Summerfield this past summer. Since then, they’ve been meeting with landowners in the area to gauge interest in the proposed project. So far it’s been well received,” Black told Rotarians, according to an Advocate story.
