Wind turbines

A new wind farm is under construction near Fairmont

An Omaha-based energy company says construction on its wind farm in Fillmore County is "well underway."

Bluestem Energy Solutions said three 2.3 megawatt wind turbines are in the process of being built at the Perennial Wind Farm near Fairmont.

Energy generated from the wind farm will be used by the Perennial Public Power District, which is based in York.

The wind farm is scheduled to start operating sometime in the third quarter, Bluestem said in a news release.
