First of 13 Schuylkill County windmills to be up Sept. 11  


BOWMANS, Pa. (AP) – The first of 13 windmills will be erected at Locust Ridge Wind Farm in Mahanoy Township in Schuylkill County in early September.

The other 12 will be up by Thanksgiving.

Wind farm developer Joseph Green tells the Pottsville Republican the 13 will be the largest, and some of the first, windmills to be built in Schuylkill County.

Green says the power generated will be sold to a utility.

The project is being funded by wind energy marketer and developer Community Energy Incorporated of Wayne, Pennsylvania.

In February, the Schuylkill County Planning and Zoning Commission approved a variance to allow the project to start operations, and in March the Mahanoy Township supervisors agreed to follow the zoning commission’s recommendation.

The first full tower will be put up September 11th.
