More wind turbines may sprout in Wood County  

Nearly 30 more wind turbines could be in store for Wood County.

American Municipal Power-Ohio recently announced a joint partnership with JW Great Lakes Wind LLC for the development of up to 49.9 megawatts of wind-powered electricity on a proposed site northwest of the existing four turbines at the Wood County landfill.

Most commercial-sized turbines, including those four in operation, generate up to 1.7 megawatts of electricity. To generate 49.9 megawatts, AMP-Ohio and JW Great Lakes Wind would have to install at least 29 turbines of that capacity.

The AMP-Ohio Web site has a press release that states the two parties still have to determine if the project is economically feasible before proceeding. It will spend the next year doing that study. If the study shows the project is viable, construction would occur in 2008 and 2009, the release said.

AMP-Ohio built the four turbines west of Bowling Green with the help of Green Mountain Energy. The units are now owned and operated by Ohio Municipal Electric Generation Agency Joint Venture 6, a consortium of 10 AMP-Ohio members that includes the city of Bowling Green. The nonprofit Green Energy Ohio assisted with the construction of those turbines.
