Wind wanted 

BELLEFONTE – If Gamesa Energy USA’s plans go through, the company will convert wind blowing across part of Taylor Township to energy as early as the end of 2009.

Joshua Framel, project developer in Gamesa’s Philadelphia office, described the company’s plan for the Sandy Ridge Wind Farm to the Centre County Planning Commission Tuesday night. The farm would have 25 two-megawatt windmills, with about 35 percent of the project in Taylor Township in Centre County and 65 percent in neighboring Snyder Township, Blair County, Framel said.

The project is still in its preliminary stages, and the company has not yet submitted a proposal to the Centre County planning office. Planning Commission approval for a subdivision and land development plan would be needed.

Framel said plans include putting seven to nine of the windmills – which reach 404 feet into the air when a blade is at its peak – in Taylor Township. Each windmill could generate enough electricity in a year to power 600 homes and costs more [ends]
