ST. JOSEPH — Construction on the state's biggest wind-energy project so far is scheduled to begin Monday in northwest Missouri.

Wind Capital Group said the Lost Creek Wind Farm project in DeKalb County is a month ahead of schedule.

The St. Louis-based company says it expects the $300 million, 150-megawatt wind project to be finished in late spring of 2010.

The project is expected to generate electricity to power more than 50,000 homes.
