DTE Energy moving into next phase for Pinnebog Wind Project with a few challenges  

Credit:  BRANDON JAMES | Tue, 06 Oct 2015 | www.thumbnet.net ~~

A new DTE wind park in Chandler, Colfax and Oliver Townships is moving into the next phase of development, but also with a few hurdles. At the Oliver Township Board meeting Tuesday night in Elkton, DTE representatives said that they hope to file the necessary documents for full application of the Pinnebog Wind Project by the end of this month. They also are hoping to do the same for the other two townships in that time frame. Three participating landowners out of 17 who already have contracts with DTE Energy through previous projects have not signed a property line distance setback waiver at this time for various reasons. One landowner, who spoke at the meeting, even offered to return all money received by DTE in the years they have been a participant in order to no longer be involved in wind energy. DTE Project Engineer Paul Funk says “all options will be exhausted to come to a reasonable agreement with those landowners to move forward, but the absolute last resort would be some form of legal action since the three are all under signed contracts.” The Pinnebog Wind Farm is expected to have up to 30 turbines, including up to 15 in Oliver Township.
