Page County Supervisors were informed Tuesday, July 30, of proposed wind turbines for eastern portions of the county.
Mark Zaccone of Invenergy said Invenergy has acquired Tradewind Energy which was developing a wind turbine project in northwest Missouri. Invenergy, which is a part of Enel Green Power, will continue the project. Zaccone said turbines may be installed in extreme, eastern Page County and into Taylor County.
Zaccone said up to 30 turbines are considered between the two counties. Depending upon conditions, the towers may stand as tall as 580 feet, from the tip of the blade to the ground.
Zaccone said Page County has the three important needs for wind turbine development; transmission lines, wind and interested landowners.
He declined to explain compensation amounts for landowners who agreed to have a turbine.
“Pay depends upon impact of the ground,” he said. “Having a turbine and a road to the turbine are the largest impacts.”
Zaccone said more information about the project may be released this month.
