A community wind-power project on Colorado's northeastern plains will receive $2.5 million in federal stimulus funds.

Phillips County wants to build a community-owned 30-megawatt project with the ultimate goal of building a 650-megawatt wind farm within Sedgwick, Phillips and Logan counties.

The wind farm will provide power for local communities and area landowners and other participants will share the revenue.

Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., said Thursday that the Northeast Colorado Wind project was one of five selected by the Department of Energy. Financing will include private and local government money.
