Corporation Commission OK inquiry on wind power issues 

Credit:  By PAUL MONIES | The Oklahoman | August 13, 2014 | www.tulsaworld.com ~~

Where to place industrial wind farms and how to best notify surrounding landowners will be among the topics to be discussed in the next few months at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

The commission voted Tuesday to open a notice of inquiry into wind farms. Two technical conferences to further refine questions are scheduled for Sept. 11 and Oct. 15. A hearing before the commission is set for Dec. 2.

The fact-finding process was requested by Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa, after several pieces of legislation related to wind farms failed to advance through the Legislature. Among the bills was a proposed moratorium on wind farms in the eastern part of the state.

The Corporation Commission held two stakeholder meetings in July with interested landowners and wind farm companies to get an idea of what the wind inquiry should cover.
