OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A lawsuit filed by a newly formed group in Caddo County alleges that the developer of two wind farms didn’t adequately notify residents and public officials about turbine locations.

The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/2lSBqRM ) reports the Scenic Prairie Preservation Association sued NextEra Energy Resources LLC this month.

The association says the company didn’t properly notify the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and local residents, and wants the court to halt any construction until the company resubmits notice requirements.

The company denies that it failed to provide sufficient notification of the locations of 156 turbines across the two projects.

A 2015 state law requires wind turbines to be at least 1.5 nautical miles, or 9,100, feet from a school, hospital or airport. It also requires developers to register projects with the commission and file legal notices in local newspapers.
