MAYSVILLE — Although discussions are in the preliminary stages, a Florida-based company said it's considering building a wind farm in DeKalb and Clinton counties.

Steve Stengel, a spokesman for NextEra Energy Resources of Juno Beach, Fla., said the company is talking to landowners about a possible 200-megawatt wind farm.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that the company also is measuring the area's wind resources and investigating the availability of transmission lines.

Stengel said if everything went well, construction of the wind farm could start this year.

The company has not yet found a customer for the electricity or applied for any permits in the two counties.

NextEra has wind farms across the country, but this would be its first project in Missouri.
