Wind Farm in Emmons, Logan counties approved

A new wind farm is coming to Emmons and Logan counties.

On Wednesday, the Public Service Commission approved the siting permit for Emmons-Logan Wind and NextEra Energy Resources. The wind farm could have up to 123 turbines and an almost 7-mile long transmission line. The project will be five miles northeast of Linton, covering more than 28,000 acres.

At a public hearing in Linton in December, the majority of community members spoke in favor of the project.
