Wind farm owner sued for $1.8M

Sheldon Township is suing the owners of the Settlers Trail Wind Farm in Iroquois County, claiming the company failed to properly restore township roads used to build the 94-turbine wind farm in 2011.

The suit, which was filed last week in Iroquois County Circuit Court, seeks more than $1.8 million from the wind farm owner, E.On Climate and Renewables North America LLC.

The lawsuit claims the work, which was required to be done by E.On as part of a “road upgrade and maintenance agreement,” remains “deficient.” The poor roads cover a five-mile radius, the suit states.

A contractual agreement required E.On to repair all roads damaged during construction to their “pre-construction condition” or better.

The $1.8 million figure reflects the cost for having the necessary restoration work completed, township officials say.

E.On has not commented on the lawsuit.
