Plans for a wind farm through three Northwest Iowa counties are being scaled back by developers to comply with changes made to local ordinances. The Red Rock Wind Energy Center project is being changed in Dickinson County, as officials are considering changes to their wind turbine ordinance. Joe Crowley is a project developer for Invenergy, the company building the wind farm.

The company originally planned to build 83 wind turbines in Dickinson County, but Crowley says that’s been pared back to around 70 due to expected changes in the county’s ordinance. Crowley briefed the Emmet County Board of Supervisors this week on Invenergy’s prep work, as they plan 18 turbines in that county.

The Red Rock Wind Energy Center is being planned for Emmet, Dickinson, and Clay Counties.
