Company considering wind turbines for northern Ky.

Posted:

MAYSVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A Florida company is exploring the possibility of building wind turbines to generate electricity in two northern Kentucky counties.

NextEra Energy Resources began conducting studies last year to determine if the turbines would be a good fit for Mason and Bracken counties.

NextEra project manager Adam Rickel told The Ledger Independent in Maysville that preliminary findings show the area could support wind turbines. Rickel says the company has made contact with local landowners in the two counties as potential hosts for 40 to 70 wind turbines.

NextEra says economic benefits would include more than $180 million investment in Mason and Bracken counties with approximately $32 million in property tax revenue in the first 25 years.
