Henry County officials to learn more about wind farm future

NEW CASTLE, Ind. – The Henry County Council and County Commissioners are planning to discuss the future of possible wind farms during upcoming meetings.

The New Castle Courier Times reported that officials said they expect to meet with representatives from Nordex, an international wind energy company that has been considering locating a wind farm in southern Henry County, to give presentations during meetings.

Kim Cronk, president of the commissioners, said there won’t be any votes on the Nordex’s presentation about its wind farm on Wednesday. But he said the council and commissioners will likely hear more about what the company is planning for the county and how it’s working with the New Castle-Henry County Municipal Airport.

The airport is in the process of pursuing a runway extension project. However, if a wind farm is constructed in southern Henry County, the turbines could affect the airport’s operations.

In August 2010, Nordex earned the approval of the county planning commission to install a meteorological tower in Lewisville to measure wind speeds.

A few months later in November 2010, Nordex presented its preliminary plans to put dozens of wind turbines in southern Henry County. But Howard Kruger, project development consultant for Nordex, said then that the actual number of wind turbines placed here would depend on wind speeds.
