Upper Paxton Twp. revises wind ordinance  

The Upper Paxton Twp. Board of Supervisors last night approved a revised wind power ordinance for the northern Dauphin County township on a 2-1 vote.

The meeting room was packed with 65 people, many of them there because of the vote on the wind ordinance. Gamesa, a Spanish wind energy company, hopes to build 25 wind turbines atop Mahantango Mountain mainly in Upper Paxton Twp.

Among other things, the revised ordinance eliminates a height restriction on wind turbines contained in the old ordinance, and requires a setback of turbines from dwellings of at least 1.1 times the height of the turbine.
