Retailer Plans To Build Wind Farm Near Kenton

Nov 3, 2016

Retail giant Amazon says it plans to build a wind farm near Kenton.

The facility will generate 189 megawatts of electricity when it opens by December of 2017. Another Amazon wind farm in Paulding County is under construction, with the opening expected next May. The two facilities will power Amazon operations in Ohio and Virginia. The company wants to get 50 percent of its power from renewable sources by the end of next year.
