Fruit Ridge area scouted for wind farms  

CHESTER TOWNSHIP – It turns out the high ground that makes the well-known Fruit Ridge area across northern Kent and Ottawa counties good for fruit-growing is also good for another kind of “farming” – commercial wind farms where turbines on tall towers generate electricity.

Iberdrola Renewables of Spain, reportedly the world’s largest wind farm developer, received permission in late April from Chester Township to start construction within 90 days of a test tower on a two-acre parcel it is leasing on 8th Avenue near Gooding Street, in northeast Ottawa County.

For at least several months, Iberdrola and Heritage Sustainable Energy of Traverse City have been securing wind rights leases in several townships in northern Kent and Ottawa counties.
