kansas_city_today_pod_cover.jpg

Large wind farms have been cranking out electricity in Kansas for 20 years. In this episode we follow Brian Grimmett of the Kansas News Service as he looks at how the state’s wind industry has changed and where it could be heading.

Two decades ago, wind farms were just a novelty. Today, wind turbines define the modern Kansas landscape nearly as much as cattle and wheat. In a wide-ranging exploration, Brian Grimmett of the Kansas News Service explains what we can learn about the future of wind power.
