Wind power company eyes DeKalb County land
Firm pursuing sites for 1 or 2 farms in county’s northwest
KIRKLAND – Officials with a company interested in erecting wind turbines in the northwest part of DeKalb County said Thursday they have about half the land they need to develop a wind farm.
About 20 landowners attended a meeting Thursday morning at the Kirkland Fire Department, where representatives of Spanish company Aries Power & Industrial Co. provided details on the wind energy projects they hope to establish in DeKalb County.
The company wants to build one or two wind farms in the area of Franklin, South Grove and Malta townships. It also is working to establish wind energy projects in Champaign County, said Tim McRae, senior project developer for Aries.
