Online workshop series about Kansas wind energy hosted by Climate + Energy Project

Posted Jun 07, 2021 10:06 PM

HUTCHINSON - The Climate + Energy Project is hosting a series of free workshops for community members to hear from Kansas subject matter experts about wind energy.

The next workshop, Health & Safety, with Amanda Miller, a senior client consultant with Olsson and Pete Ferrell, a multigenerational ranch owner and wind farmer is Tuesday, June 8 from 7:00-8:00 p m. RSVP today.

Join Amanda Miller and Pete Ferrell to discuss issues around health and safety for wind development. 

Miller works with renewable energy clients throughout the continental U.S., working through state and federal policies related to renewable energy and connecting project developers with the right engineers and scientists to implement compliance programs during project planning, design, and construction phases. She will be presenting on health and safety drawing from her professional experience at Olsson. 

Pete Ferrell co-founded and was president (2000) of the Tallgrass Prairie Producers Cooperative, a rancher-owned business for marketing forage-finished beef. He was the initiator of and primary landholding member in the development of the Elk River Wind Farm constructed on the Ferrell Ranch in 2005. Pete will join Amanda and add his perspective as a landowner to this important discussion.
