State board extends time to consider re-hearing request

A state board has decided to take more time to consider issues raised by opponents of a proposed windfarm before deciding whether to grant them a re-hearing on its initial decision approving the turbines.

Matt Butler, spokesman for the Ohio Power Siting Board, stressed Thursday’s decision doesn’t mean board members have granted Omega Crop Corp. owners Gerald and Connie Oney a rehearing.

“In the simplest terms, (the entry) was procedural in nature and simply allows the Board additional time to review the application for rehearing and come to a decision,” Butler said.

Kevin Ledet, chairperson of Greenwich Neighbors United, a group which opposes the windfarm, said he’s happy with the additional time granted.

“We are very happy that the OPSB is going to take some additional time to consider the issues that have been raised in the application for rehearing, and hopefully, determine that the proposed wind farm should not be allowed to invade and fundamentally alter our community and way of life,” Ledet said.

Monica Jensen, vice president of development for the developer, Windlab, said she’s confident the board stand behind its original decision.

After the Oneys filed a motion for a re-hearing, board members had 30 days from that request to make one of three decisions: grant the request for a re-hearing, deny the request or take more time to reconsider the request.
