The start up of a wind farm and renewable energy technology program at the Rural Tech Center in LaHarpe is a little closer. The Iola Register reports that officials from EDP Renewables presented local officials with a $150,000 donation to help develop the program. EDP is set to begin construction of a wind farm in northern Allen County. That donation will go along with a $100,000 contribution from Allen County earlier this year. Planners are now about halfway to having enough seed money to get a wind energy tech class going.
