Richland trustees come out against wind development  

Credit:  Written by REUBEN MEES | February 22, 2014 | www.examiner.org ~~

Richland Township Trustees followed suit with other local government bodies in issuing a resolution stating their opposition to the Scioto Ridge Wind Farm.

EverPower Wind Holdings has submitted a plan to the Ohio Power Siting Board to build a 300-megawatt wind development of up to 176 wind turbines in Richland and four surrounding townships in northern Logan and southern Hardin counties.

“I’m the new guy on the block, but after talking to other township trustees (in Van Wert County), I see so many problems down the road,” Trustee Phil Alloway, who has only been on the board since the start of the year, said.

The trustees passed the motion by a unanimous voice vote during the monthly meeting Friday after taking a month to discuss the issues with residents and other affected parties.

Among his research, Mr. Alloway spoke with township trustees and officials from the Van Wert area where the company Iberdrola recently opened the similar-sized Blue Creek Wind Farm.
