State approves Northwest Ohio Wind Farm in Paulding County

The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) on Monday authorized Northwest Ohio Wind Energy LLC to construct a wind farm comprised of up to 59 wind turbines in Blue Creek and Latty townships in Paulding County.

The Northwest Ohio Wind Farm will have an electric generation capacity of 100 megawatts (MW), utilizing turbines with a nameplate capacity of 1.7 to 2.0 MW.

The project covers 12,750 acres of leased land near the villages of Haviland and Grover Hill, north of the existing Blue Creek Wind Farm.

Northwest Ohio Wind Energy filed an application for a Certificate of Environmental Compatibility and Public Need on May 24. A local public hearing was held on Oct. 22 at Wayne Trace High School in Haviland, where local residents testified about the proposed project.

An agreement between the formal parties to the case, Northwest Ohio Wind Energy, the OPSB staff, and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, was signed on Oct. 28.

The OPSB’s order on Dec. 16 authorizes the construction of the facility, subject to 40 conditions outlined in the agreement. These conditions will ensure the sound construction and safe operation of the facility and mitigate impacts to local residents and ecological resources.

Additional information regarding this project is available on the OPSB website at www.OPSB.ohio.gov.
