Clarification on wind turbine lease  

Credit:  The News Item, newsitem.com 5 April 2012 ~~

A lease between Northumberland County and Penn Wind LLC for a windmill project near Shamokin in 2007 did not include a flat fee of $56,000 per year as mentioned near the end of a story in Wednesday’s edition. An earlier paragraph correctly explained that the 2007 lease was for $1 per acre, with no annual fee. Commissioner Vinny Clausi renegotiated for the $56,000 annual fee with a new lease in 2009. The first payment of that $56,000 was to be made by April 20 of this year, but it appears that won’t happen as Penn Wind and a new company involved with the project, EverPower, has asked for a new lease in which it would pay the county $5 per acre per year for 400 acres, an offer, it appears, that the county won’t accept.
