NEVADA, IA. — Folks here were happy enough when HZ Windpower of Chong-qing, China, dedicated two 2-megawatt wind turbines Wednesday, but the locals have their eye on a much bigger prize.

HZ is looking for a site in the U.S. to build blades, towers and other components for wind energy. Nevada, whose motto is “Where Renewable Energy is Happening,” thinks it is just the spot for an HZ plant and laid out a welcoming lunch for the company’s officials at Indian Creek Country Club.

NEVADA — A delegation from the Chinese company HZ Windpower helped dedicate two wind turbines it built during a ceremony Wednesday in a field southwest of Nevada.

The blades on the 260-foot towers were steadily rotating in a stiff breeze as more than a dozen representatives of the company, its U.S. division Goodwind Energy, and local officials looked on.
