Document Description
Proposed installation and operation of two (2), 2.7-megawatt (MW) commercial wind energy conversion systems ("wind turbines") to supply a total of 5.4 MW of renewable energy to power the on-site agricultural processing facility. Each of the proposed wind turbines would consist of a three-bladed turbine on a tubular steel tower with a hub height of approximately 291 -feet (89 meters). The diameter of the proposed turbines is approximately 416 feet (127 meters) and the radius is half that amount (208 feet or 64 meters) resulting in a total height (hub height plus rotor radius) of 499 feet (153 meters) maximum to the rotor tip.
