The Missouri Public Service Commission wants to hear from residents.

Liberty Utilities Empire District Electric wants to build wind farms in Jasper, Barton, Dade, and Lawrence counties in Missouri and in Neosho county in Kansas. The Missouri farms would produce 150 megawatts of wind generation. While the Kansas farm would generate 300 megawatts of power.

The PSC is holding a public hearing this evening with a question and answer session beginning at six o’clock. Then PSU staff will take testimony from individuals. The public hearing is taking place at Cornell Auditorium on the Missouri Southern State University campus.
