By The Associated Press
MERRILLVILLE — Northern Indiana Public Service is planning three wind farms in an effort to gradually shift from coal-fired power to renewable energy.
The Merrillville-based utility announced Friday that the wind farms would be in Benton, Montgomery, Warren and White counties and have nearly 300 wind turbines.
NIPSCO says the northern and western Indiana farms will generate 800 megawatts of power, helping it move toward a goal of being coal-free by late 2028.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that the projects involve partnerships between the utility and private companies. NIPSCO has asked state regulators to approve the wind farms, which it expects to be in operation by late 2020.
The utility serves about 460,000 electricity customers and 820,000 natural gas customers across 32 counties.
