Sandusky County OKs alternative energy zone

FREMONT – Sandusky County commissioners have approved making the county an alternative energy zone, which will enable green energy projects to get state tax breaks.

The zone was approved Thursday to assist wind turbine manufacturer Nordex, which has proposed a 70 to 80-turbine wind-energy farm in York Township in Sandusky County and Thompson Township in Seneca County. The project is in the planning phase and couldn’t begin before next year.

In October, Seneca County commissioners created an alternative energy zone in their county.

Under such an agreement, alternative energy firms would pay $9,000 per megawatt per year in lieu of taxes.

The payment would be divided among the county, schools, municipalities, and townships.
