The finishing touches on the 59th, and final, turbine comprising the Prairie Queen Wind Farm in northern Allen County should be done by the end of today.
The milestone will trigger a shift in getting the wind farm fully operational, which should be done by the end of the month, reported Chris Morris, project developer with EDP Renewables, which owns the wind farm.
Soon, the scores of workers responsible for erecting the turbines will be leaving Allen County, either to another EDP wind farm project in Texas, or elsewhere in the country.
