MOUNT VERNON, Ind. (AP) - A Texas company is eyeing southwestern Indiana for a proposed 200-megawatt wind farm.

E.ON Climate & Renewables North America wants to erect up to 81 wind turbines in Posey County in the state’s far southwestern corner.

Construction of the wind farm could begin in 2020 if Posey County planning officials approve the project.

Karsen Rumpf is the wind development manager for the Austin, Texas-based company. He says the project’s scope and timetable depends on how many landowners are interested in leasing property for the turbines and the right-of-way for access roads to them.

Rumpf tells the Evansville Courier & Press it would take an estimated 47 to 81 wind turbines for the proposed farm to generate 200 megawatts of power.
