MAYSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Duke Energy representative has met with officials and concerned residents in Fleming and Mason counties to explain a proposal to build wind turbines in the area.

The Ledger-Independent reports that Duke Energy Director of Business Management Graham Furlong told those who attended the meetings that the company is exploring the idea of building between 26 and 100 wind turbines in the area that could produce between 70 and 150 megawatts of energy.

He said if the proposal moves forward, construction could begin as soon as 2016.

Officials in both counties peppered Furlong with questions.

He answered them, but noted that the company is still in the early phases of the proposed project.
