Iowa County adopts Wind Energy ordinance

IOWA COUNTY, Iowa - A long-debated wind ordinance in Iowa County has officially been approved and adopted.

The County Board of Supervisors tell KCRG-TV9 the agreement sets regulations on where energy companies can place wind turbines across the county.

The ordinance can still be amended at a later date with changes, though the ordinance and any amendments would not apply to a current agreement between the county, Invenergy and MidAmerican Energy.

Invenergy and MidAmerican have plans to place more than 70 turbines across the county.
