PERKINS TOWNSHIP – NASA is still set on building a proposed wind farm at Plum Brook Station. The cluster of wind-powered turbines would help generate electricity for NASA research centers and help the space agency meet federal energy requirements.
The turbines would be installed on about 2,000 under-used acres at the facility.
Before NASA can start building, the agency will host a public meeting Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Sandusky High School, 2130 Hayes Ave., in Room 300.
Last year, NASA was seeking information from possible wind farm suppliers, but not taking official bids. The agency was in search of information on suppliers that would own and operate the wind farm and be responsible for design, construction, operation and maintenance of the wind turbines.
It is not known whether a supplier had been chosen.
Members of the community will have the opportunity to learn more about the project and share their thoughts on the wind farm.
During the meeting, a presentation will take place on the proposal followed by a question and answer session. Written comments may also be submitted until Oct. 23.
