LAHARPE — Dreams of starting up a wind farm and renewable energy technology program at LaHarpe’s Regional Rural Tech Center are one step closer to reality.

Officials from EDP Renewables, which is ready to begin construction of a wind farm in northern Allen County, presented local officials with a $150,000 donation Wednesday to go toward the program’s development.

Coupled with a $100,000 contribution from Allen County earlier this year, planners are now roughly halfway to their goal of having enough seed money to get a wind energy tech class going, perhaps as early as next fall.
