July 28—Wind energy could be blowing into Grady County in 2016.

NextEra Wind Energy representative, Krista Hendricks, spoke to the Grady County Commissioners about a possible wind farm to be built in Rush Springs.

The project, Rush Springs Winds Energy Center, would house 125 General Electric wind turbines in Grady and Stephens County with the main transmission line being in Stephens County.

The center is expected to produce 250 megawatts of energy. The center is expected to employ 12 full time employees, Hendricks said.

Construction is expected to begin in May 2016 and the estimated completion date is December 2016. Commercial operation could begin at the end of 2016, Hendricks said.
