SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The company behind a controversial wind farm proposal in Lincoln County has terminated its easements with 122 property owners.

Dakota Power Community Wind had pitched a project that would have been the state’s largest wind farm, with up to 500 turbines producing up to 1,000 megawatts of power.

After opposition surfaced, county commissioners passed strict wind farm rules and voters upheld the decision in July.

The Argus Leader reports that the developer this week canceled the landowner easements it had on file with the county, likely signaling an end to the long-debated project south of Sioux Falls.

Company representative Brian Minish declined to comment, saying he’d offer a public statement to county commissioners at their regular meeting Tuesday.
