NEMAHA CO., Kan. (WIBW) — A proposed wind farm in Nemaha County is one step closer to reality.

MSC News reports the Nemaha County Commission approved a revised term sheet Wednesday, outlining details of the proposed Soldier Creek wind farm.

It shows 132 possible wind turbine sites, and caps production at 300 megawatts for the life of the project.

Construction cannot start until contracts for road use and project decommissioning are approved by Nemaha County.

13 News was in Seneca in April when hundreds packed the Nemaha County community building for a town hall discussion about the wind farm.

Next-Era Energy would build the farm, which would cover more than 80,000 acres.

Several entities; including Washburn, KU, K-State, and Topeka Public Schools; have signed agreements to use energy from the wind farm.
