There?s not a little irony that the pace of construction for the Prairie Queen Wind Farm complex in northern Allen County has slowed in recent days because of too much wind.
To safely erect the 600-foot-plus turbines, wind speeds must be below 14 mph, a threshold the wind has easily exceeded in recent weeks.
So crews can do little more than sit it out and wait, noted Stevee Kennard, project developer with EDP Renewables, which will operate the wind farm.
