GRAFTON, Vt. (AP) - Developers seeking to build a commercial wind project in Vermont say they plan to start environmental surveys to help them figure out where the turbines might go.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1PBnZO9 ) energy company Iberdrola Renewables has been collecting wind data from three meteorological towers located near the Grafton-Windham town line.

The company will use the data to decide if the site is viable for between 20 to 30 450-foot wind turbines.

The surveys are intended to give the company a better idea of where the wind project would likely be located.

Project Manager Jenny Briot says developers will probably know if the turbines can be built there at the end of next year.



Construction of the towers could begin in 2019.
