Indiana Michigan Power (I&M), a Fort Wayne, Ind.-headquartered electric utility and subsidiary of American Electric Power (AEP), has identified sites to test the economical and technical feasibility of building a wind farm in the state.

The company will install anemometers to test the wind conditions for approximately two years. After that testing period, I&M will determine whether to move forward with any wind projects. The utility has arranged leases with approximately 15 landowners to test the wind conditions - paying more than $4,000 per year to lease the land.

According to the American Wind Energy Association, there are currently no wind farms in Indiana. AEP owns and operates wind farms in Texas.
