Genesis Development of Kentucky LLC, an Elkhorn City, Ky.-based firm that was recently founded, is conducting site testing in Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia for potential wind farms.

The company will conduct wind assessment studies lasting six months to a year to determine the best location to build a wind farm, says Scott Sykes, Genesis Development's president. He adds that the company is expecting to construct several wind farms in the long run - the first would have a capacity of about 100 MW.

According to the American Wind Energy Association, there are currently no wind farms in Kentucky or Virginia. Sykes says because of the lack of wind projects in the area, residents may be skeptical. Therefore, Genesis Development is open to questions and comments while the study is taking place and plans on conducting public forums early in the developmental process once a site is chosen.
