Wind energy in Indiana: New wind power projects

EDP Renewables is eyeing parts of three east-central Indiana counties as possible sites for one or more wind farms.


Representatives of Houston-based EDP Renewables told the Wayne County commissioners Wednesday the company will study parts of Wayne, Randolph and Henry counties as possible wind farm locations.

EDP Project Manager Jeffrey Nemeth told the commissioners the company might build one wind farm in each county or one that straddles all three, but it’s also possible the firm could decide not to build in the area.

The Star Press reports Nemeth says any development is in the early stages and “there’s a lot of studying to do.”

EDP has already built one wind farm in Randolph County. The Headwaters Wind Farm was completed in December.
