Graham County Takes Another Step Toward Wind Farm

KSAL StaffMay 6, 2013

A northwest Kansas county is closer to having its own 70-megawatt wind farm.

The Graham County Commission has approved a conditional use permit for the Ringneck Prairie Wind Farm 6 miles south of Hill City.

The Hays Daily News reports that details remain to be worked out, but last week’s approval of the conditional-use permit, as well as road and payment agreements, means the project is on track.

The county’s economic development director, Kirk Schweitzer, says road work, pad sites, underground power lines and other steps could be completed in the fall, with towers going up next spring.

The wind farm is expected to create eight permanent jobs once it is operating.
