KEMPTON – The developers of the Pilot Hill Wind Project have been granted a two-year extension of their special-use permit for the construction of up to 96 turbines in the Kempton area in northern Ford County.

The Ford County Zoning Board of Appeals voted 5-0 to approve extending the permit until Nov. 11, 2016. It was the second permit extension granted in Ford County for the project, formerly known as the K4 Wind Farm. In 2011, the county extended the permit it initially granted in 2008 for another three years, through November 2014.

Zoning Officer Matt Rock said the Ford County phase of the wind farm is expected to be built in 2015.

Construction of Phase I, which includes 61 turbines in Kankakee County and 42 in Iroquois County, is expected to begin this year.
