O’Brien County Economic Development director Kiana Johnson says the Iowa Public Utilities Board and Clean Line Energy are holding the first meeting, and the second is an O’Brien County Board of Supervisors hearing with Invenergy.
She says Clean Line’s meeting is a routine part of the approval process for their wind resource converter station and transmission line.
Johnson says the Invenergy meeting is also a routine meeting, but part of a different process — the O’Brien County Wind Ordinance.
She says Invenergy is partnering with MidAmerican Energy to develop wind turbines.
Johnson says it’s possible there may be even more wind energy-related projects in the future as more people discover the potential of O’Brien County.
