Wind energy in Washington Co.

A southeast Iowa lawmaker says Washington County could be come the wind energy capital of the state. Representative Larry Marek says he and other local government officials have been working with Kansas based Trade Wind Energy to develop a plan. Marek says the wind farm would likely be located in the northern part of Washington County. He says it would stretch from Riverside to the Keokuk County line, and could well be the largest wind farm in Iowa.
