Primghar, IA (AP) – O’Brien County is looking forward to millions of dollars in investment and thousands of jobs from a surge of wind energy projects.
It was reported Monday various companies are planning large-scale projects in O’Brien County over the next several years that would harness and export renewable energy to nearby cities. The projects include turbine and power line construction.
County officials say the projects from companies like MidAmerican Energy Co. represent an economic boom that will help local businesses and grow communities.
County Economic Development Director Kiana Johnson says several more companies are looking to develop wind-related projects in the area, but they’re in earlier planning stages.
