Wind farm developer alters plan

A public hearing in Wells County on Thursday will detail a modified plan for a wind turbine project proposed by Apex Wind Energy of Charlottesville, Va.

The Wells County Plan Commission voted 6-4 in March to approve the proposed wind farm after a six-hour public hearing in front of a crowd that packed the Southern Wells High School gym.

Apex’s proposal includes building about 80 turbines in southern Wells County, with the concentration in Chester, Liberty and Nottingham townships. Poneto is the only incorporated town within the wind-farm project area.

The initial proposal was unveiled in December. After it was approved in March, the petition was appealed to Wells Superior Court. As a result, Wells County Wind has modified several items in the original petition.

The changes were requested after members of Wells County Concerned Citizens voiced concerns, including shadow flickers, property values and increased noise. The first of two phases for the wind farm is set to get under way next spring.

Maps detailing the requested changes and proposed placement of the turbines are available on the plan commission’s website at www.wellscounty.org/apc.htm.
