Wind Farms


Kossuth County has been approached by several entities that are interested in building commercial-sized (i.e. – greater than 100 kW of capacity) wind energy generating facilities (windfarms) in the county.  Kossuth County’s Zoning Ordinance does not address windfarms so the Kossuth County Board of Supervisors are working to create an ordinance to do this.  This page is intended to keep the public notified of the Board of Supervisors work.
