El Paso County commissioners approve wind farm

COLORADO SPRINGS — Southern Colorado will soon be home to 150 new wind turbines, but not everyone is happy.

Residents from Calhan showed up Thursday at the El Paso County commissioners meeting to express concerns about the plan.

Some opponents say the wind farm will be too close to their homes. Others are worried about the impact on wildlife.

According to KKTV-TV, supporters say the project will create hundreds of jobs and pump millions of dollars into the local economy.

The project will begin in March, and the turbines are expected to be up and running by 2015.
