Gov. Jay Nixon, D-Mo., has announced that his administration has authorized a $5.6 million incentive package for Nordic Windpower USA. As a result, the company will move forward with plans to relocate its headquarters and operations from California and Idaho to facilities near the Kansas City International Airport.
The incentives include resources from the state's Community Development Block Grant and employee recruitment and referral programs, as well as sales tax exemptions for equipment and machinery purchased.
‘By expanding the production of clean, renewable and domestic energy in Missouri, we provide reliable power for our communities, and we fuel the economy of the future,’ says Nixon.
The move will involve a capital investment of nearly $16 million and the creation of more than 200 local jobs over the next six years, according to the company.
