HAYS, Kan. (AP) _ Fort Hays State University could be generating electricity from wind turbines in the next few weeks.

After more than six years of planning and a price tag $9 million, work crews are installing two 400-foot wind turbines at the university in Hays.

The Hays Daily News reports crews began installing the first turbine last week. Fort Hays President Edward Hammond says the turbines should be operational by Aug. 1.

Hammond estimated the project will save the university $600,000 the first year, and as much as $700,000 to $900,000 in subsequent years.
