Antelope County supervisors OK 160-turbine wind farm  

Credit:  journalstar.com ~~

NELIGH – Another wind farm has been approved for Antelope County, over objections from some residents.

The county Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to let a Chicago-based company erect 160 turbines near Neligh. The company, Invenergy, already operates a wind farm in the Elgin area.

The supervisors imposed several conditions on the project, such as increased setback distances and completion of a noise analysis within 24 months after the structures are erected. Eight turbines in the original proposal were dropped because of potential conflict with flight space around the Neligh airport.

Opponents have cited concerns about noise and sought tighter restrictions on setback distances. People who favored the wind farm have said it could increase jobs and tax revenue and provide clean energy.
