Cuming County Public Power Moving Forward Toward Wind Energy

The Cuming County Public Power Board voted this past week to move ahead with plans for a single wind turbine which would provide about 10 percent of the county’s energy needs at a savings of $250,000 to $1.5-million over a 30 year  period.  It would also provide about $11,500 a year in property taxes, with about $7,000 going to the Wisner school district each year, according to CCPPD executive director Chet McWhorter.
