Answers just blowin’ in the wind: Greenwich wind turbine opponents continue their fight

A state board may have approved a wind turbine project in Greenwich Township, but a group of residents opposed to the idea aren’t finished fighting.

Omega Crop Company owners Gerald and Connie Oney have filed a rehearing request with the Ohio Power Siting Board. The board is a separate entity within the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and has the final say as to whether the park is built.

The board can make one of three decisions within 30 days of Omega’s filing: It can reconsider its approval of the project, deny Omega’s reconsideration request or it can expand the amount of time it takes to consider its options.

Omega’s attorney, Sam Randazzo, said if the Ohio Power Siting Board denies Omega’s request, the group has the option of appealing to the Ohio Supreme Court. That process could take a year to a 18 months, Randazzo said.
