HARTINGTON — The city of Hartington is investigating the possibility of investing in wind energy.

Mayor Tom Noecker told the Council at its Sept. 12 meeting the city will be receiving two anemetors on Sept. 16.

The two test units will gather information to see if there is enough wind over a period of time to generate power to be used and or sold for the city.

“Every month we will pull chips from the aneometors and send them to the Western Area Power Association, which will give us the data we need,” said Noecker. “Nebraska Public Power District will help crunch the numbers from the data to see if it is feasible for Hartington.”
