Wind farm to stretch over 5 townships  

Credit:  The Bellevue Gazette | thebellevuegazette.com ~~

Repub­lic Wind Farm LLC is work­ing on the ground­work for a 200 megawatt wind farm in the San­dusky and Seneca coun­ties area, accord­ing to a state filing.

The cor­po­ra­tion has plans to build about 83 MW tur­bines, accord­ing to the report.

Repub­lic Wind, LLC, intends to file an appli­ca­tion to con­struct the Repub­lic Wind Farm, which would spread across nearly 15,000 acres of leased land. That prop­erty is in the town­ships of Adams, Reed, Sci­pio and Thomp­son in Seneca County and York Town­ship in San­dusky County, accord­ing to a pre-application filed with the Ohio Power Sit­ing Board.

Each of the 83 tur­bines would gen­er­ate 2.4 MW of power. The cor­po­ra­tion also projects it would con­struct access roads, elec­tri­cal col­lec­tion sys­tem, stag­ing areas, oper­a­tion and main­te­nance facil­i­ties plus sub­sta­tions, accord­ing to the filing.

Repub­lic plans to file sep­a­rate appli­ca­tions for 8-mile trans­mis­sion line and two sub­sta­tions asso­ci­ated with the wind farm. The com­pany held a pub­lic infor­ma­tion meet­ing on Nov. 27, 2012 in Green Springs.

The sit­ing board approves such appli­ca­tions, accord­ing to the OPS web site.

Kay Reiter, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the San­dusky County Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion said Tues­day that the first pub­lic hear­ing on the project involv­ing Nordex USA was held in Green Springs last Novem­ber, and now com­pany offi­cials are work­ing on state and fed­eral applications.

She said the pro­posed wind tur­bines would cover an area of 10-by-6 miles between the two coun­ties. The power gen­er­ated would pro­vide enough power for 55,000 homes, she added.

The project could break ground by next year, she added on Tuesday.
