Wind farm to be built in northwestern Indiana  

Press Release

Indianapolis, Ind. – Today, in Cause No. 43338, the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission approved a petition from independent power producer Fowler Ridge Wind Farm LLC to build and operate a 750-megawatt power generating wind farm in Fowler, Indiana and as provided by statute, partially declined to exercise regulation.

The electricity generated at the facility provides renewable options to supplement the demonstrated need for additional capacity in Indiana.

As part of the IURC’s monitoring of electric systems across the state, the order requires the company to keep the IURC informed of progress during construction, and must get Commission approval on any plans that materially increase, decrease or change the wind farm’s capacity or operation. The company is required to seek prior approval for any transfer of assets owned by Fowler Ridge Wind Farm LLC, and the IURC reserves the right to regulate the wind farm if it becomes an affiliate of regulated utility in Indiana.

Fowler Ridge Wind Farm L.L.C. agrees to operate its facility in a manner consistent with good utility practice intends to comply with all local zoning and land use requirements. The company’s evidence also indicates that it intends to comply with local requirements concerning noise and aesthetics.

Electricity generated at the facility will be sold on the wholesale market. Fowler Ridge Wind Farm L.L.C. does not intend and is not authorized by the IURC to sell any electricity generated from this facility to the public on a retail basis.

A request by Indiana American to purchase wind generation from this facility is pending with the Commission.
