Greenwich residents continue wind turbine battle

GREENWICH TOWNSHIP – OMEGA Crop Co., filed a second application for rehearing with the Ohio Power Siting Board in Case No 13-0990-EL-BGN on Sept. 24. This second application for rehearing asserts that the Ohio Power Siting Board acted outside the law when it issued the Greenwich Windpark LLC a certificate and by indicating that it is yet possible to build the wind farm by securing needed waivers from the minimum setback requirements.

In OMEGA’s first application for hearing, OMEGA argued that 62 percent of the proposed wind turbines violate Ohio’s minimum setback requirements. Although the OPSB in its Aug. 27 order rejected OMEGA’s claims regarding OPSB’s failure to follow the law, it did confirm that Greenwich Windpark LLC cannot commence construction of a wind farm where 62 percent of the proposed 25 wind turbines violate Ohio’s minimum setback requirements until and unless Greenwich Windpark LLC secures permission from all owners of property adjoining the wind farm.

In the second application for rehearing, a list of adjacent property owners to the Greenwich Windpark was attached to clearly document that the OPSB’s disregard for its statutory obligations denies many property owners, including Omega, the minimum statutory protections regarding the location of wind farms and interferes with the exercise of inalienable rights these property owners hold as documented by the Ohio Constitution. Such rights include acquiring, possessing and protecting property, as well as seeking and obtaining safety and happiness.

“This is another step for Greenwich residents trying to protect our community and property. We will exhaust every possible remedy in fighting for our Constitutional rights,” Kevin Ledet, chairperson for Greenwich Neighbors United, said.
