Tipton County officials have given the green light to a new wind farm.

The Prairie Breeze Wind Farm will add 94 wind turbines to the county’s landscape. But there’s a catch, the company has to make sure the $300 million project won’t lower homeowners’ property values.

All the turbines also have to be built at least 1,500 feet from property lines.

Tipton County is already home to the Wildcat Wind Farm which has more than 60 wind turbines.

Several more energy companies want to set up shop as well.
