The article focuses on the proposal made by two energy companies to construct the first large-scale wind farms in Bentin County, Indiana. Orion Energy LLC. of Oakland, California proposed to install 135 wind turbines to generate 200 megawatts of electricity and enXco Inc. of North Palm Spring, California proposed to install 67 turbine to generate 100-megawatt of energy. The installation was said to generate energy of about 100,000 homes.
