Credit:  Potter County Today, pottercountypa.net 11 March 2011 ~~

AES Corporation has asked the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection to approve the first phase of its Fox Hill Wind Energy Project in Potter County. The initial plan calls for construction of 21 turbines in Ulysses Township and 12 in neighboring Hector Township. Each of the machines would stand taller than 400 feet and generate up to 1.5 megawatts of electricity.

Meanwhile, elected officials in Hector Township are prepared to follow Ulysses Township’s lead in adopting an ordinance regulating the location of turbines in the municipality. Hector Township Board of Supervisors will take action on a proposed Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance following a public hearing at 6 pm on Wednesday, March 16, at the township building in Sunderlinville. Township Secretary Basil McCutcheon reports that the proposed ordinance can be viewed by appointment. He can be reached at 334-5668.

The accompanying map on the left shows the location of the turbines proposed in phase one. The map at right plots all phases of the Fox Hill Wind Energy Project. The township line runs vertically on the right side of each panel, with Ulysses Township on the left and Hector Township on the right.
