“Rising over the treeless, rolling prairie and ranch lands, 15 miles west of this vibrant Osage County town, drivers along U.S. Highway 60 notice the sudden appearance of 84 wind farm towers, reaching hundreds of feet into the blue sky.
Instead of the sounds of birds singing a summer’s song or a south breeze sweeping the bluestem grass, travelers will hear a slow, steady whirring noise, as the giant blades rotate in the relentless wind on the prairie, attached to turbines to generate electricity.
At night, the slow, steady red blinking lights attached to the top of the turbine towers can be seen from a 30-mile radius.
The massive wind farm is part of Osage Wind, a project of Tradewind Energy and its parent company, Enel North America.”
