Wind turbines still proposed for eastern Van Wert County  

Credit:  Times Bulletin | Friday, April 04 | www.timesbulletin.com ~~

Our committee opposing the proposed Dog Creek wind project has been attending several township meetings. At the meetings, Dan Litchfield, Iberdrola – has updated everyone on the progress of the proposed Dog Creek wind project.

1) Iberdrola has enough land/contracts signed to go forth with the Dog Creek project.

2) The project will have 50-60 wind turbines heading east of the the existing Van Wert Blue Creek project, north of State Route 30 and stopping at Bockey road.

3) Anyone that has signed or will sign a contract to put a wind turbine on their property cannot get out of the contract once it is signed.

If you are opposed to this Dog Creek project, please voice your opinion now. Do not wait until 50-60 more turbines are in your back yard. Iberdrola claims they are a good business partner but in the next breath wants us to give them huge tax abatements (in lieu of paying taxes) for the project. What should have Van Wert County received instead of the $2,070,000 million dollar check? $9,120,000 is what Iberdrola should be paying each year. So instead of paying $60,000 per turbine, they paid $18,000. If Iberdrola is going to force us, in the Dog Creek area, to live by these turbines for the next 25 years, let’s make sure they pay the full tax amount.

Please call Van Wert County Commissioners to let them know you oppose the Dog Creek wind project and any other tax abatement – Thad Lichtensteiger, Stan Owens, Todd Wolfrum at (419) 238-6159.

The Van Wert County Commissioners will have the final vote for the tax abatement on this project. The commissioners have told our committee that they will listen to all township trustees on this issue. Ultimately the commissioners will make the decision.

Your opinion to the commissioners does matter! Please call today!
