Kingfisher Wind is a wind energy project planned for northern Canadian County and southern Kingfisher County. Located outside of all city and town boundaries, the project was built in rural, open, unincorporated portions of these counties, in areas where landowners wish to host turbines on their private property. The project offers economic development benefits to both Canadian and Kingfisher Counties and significantly enhance the budgets of several local school districts.
