Good News/Bad News for Randolph Southern Wind Turbine

The Muncie's Star Press headline of Plans on hold for Randolph Southern wind turbine sounded a bit bad but it appears it was location and not much more causing the delay.
"Plans for a 330-foot wind turbine on the west side of campus are on hold after the manufacturer said it didn't want to place it too close to the school. Now, school officials and consultants from Performance Services of Indianapolis, an engineering and construction company, are hoping to find a site nearby to get the project back on track.

The ultimate goal is to build a turbine, sell the energy it generates on the grid and reap the financial benefits by blowing new money into the school's budget. Over the typical 25-year life span of the turbine, Randolph Southern hoped to net $2.5 million."
I think I saw some wind turbines coming south of Kokomo on US 31. A better idea to put money into than mainlining coal.
