The southeast corner of Logan County may have some new landscape features.

Up to 80 wind turbines could be erected by next winter if the Logan County Board approves Re-Light’s proposed project.

The company, based in Italy, says their first US project will bring jobs and green energy but some residents are worried about noise levels.

“Is it 90 decibels, will it be 70,” asked Mount Pulaski resident Dawn Kitchen. “It is going to be a thousand feet from my house, will I hear it?”

Others expressed concerns about the possible hazard to migratory birds but Re-Light project manager Michele Milani says the towers his company has erected around the globe are built as to not interfere with migrating flocks.
