Wind Turbines

Wind farm east of Bradford along both sides of Highway 65.

Following a public hearing Wednesday morning, the Hardin County Board of Supervisors chose not to act on the county zoning board's recommended amendments to a wind energy ordinance. Instead, the board will meet May 22 for a work session to discuss the proposed changes.

RWE Renewables has been planning for construction of a 200-megawatt wind farm on the west edge of Hardin County. The farm would include as many as 84 wind turbines that will be located from an area west of Alden to south near Radcliffe. The proposed wind farm would not be constructed until 2022.
