The Randolph County Board of Commissioners Monday approved wind energy agreements with E.ON Climate Renewables.

The agreements covered economic development money that will be paid to the county by the developer, the plan to take the wind turbines down once they are no longer functioning and an agreement to return local roads to their prior condition once construction of the turbines is completed.

The proposed E.ON wind farm would include approximately 30 turbines, generating 50 to 60 megawatts of electricity with a $120-140 million investment in Randolph County, creating two or three permanent jobs and supplementing 250 construction jobs, said E.ON attorney Mary Solada.
