HAYS, Kan. (AP) _ Ellis County will have its first wind power project, if Fort Hays State University meets certain requirements.
The county commission on Monday approved a conditional-use permit for Fort Hays State to construct two 2.1 megawatt wind turbines about 3.5 miles south of the university.
The Hays Daily News reports the approval is contingent on the university meeting some requirements before construction begins. Those include providing a transportation plan, liability insurance, a decommission plan and an erosion control plan.
The turbines are expected to provide 97 percent of the university's electrical needs.
