MAYSVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A second company has notified officials in northeastern Kentucky that it has discontinued research on a possible wind energy project in the area.

The Ledger-Independent reports NextEra Energy Resources sent a letter earlier this month to Mason County officials to let them know an analysis of the project is being discontinued due to a new state law and a move for stricter local laws.

The move came about a week after Duke Energy Renewables announced that it was discontinuing a proposed wind turbine project Mason and Fleming counties near the community of May’s Lick.

A letter from that company said officials decided to explore other possibilities after finding that the wind project had a “marginal” likelihood of success.

Both proposals had caused controversy in the surrounding communities.
