Delaware County set for Wind Energy Boost


Delaware County is ready to be energized.

After an order of seventeen Nordex N100 wind turbines and a 10-minute groundbreaking ceremony, residents are growing excited about the arrival of the Elk Wind Farm just west of Greeley.

“This is a huge economic boon to Delaware County,” Supervisor Jerry Ries told the Dubuque Telegraph-Herald.

The farm is set to open next October and will generate up to 41 megawatts of power, reports the Cedar Rapids Gazette.
