Prevailing Winds pulls wind farm application

AVON – The investors seeking to construct a wind farm near Avon have withdrawn their application with the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission (PUC).

Prevailing Winds LLC made the request Tuesday for consideration at the PUC meeting in Pierre. The proposed project would have constructed 100 turbines covering 36,000 acres in Charles Mix and Bon Homme counties.

The proposed 201-megawatt wind farm would generate up to 860,000 megawatt-hours annually of electric power.

The motion to withdraw the application cites misinformation surrounding the project. The organizers say they plan “to better inform the community on the wind project and allow Prevailing Winds to revisit its options regarding the project.”

The PUC held a public input meeting last week in Avon as part of the wind energy facility permitting process. An estimated 300 people filled one side of the school gymnasium. Audience members offered comments both supporting and opposing the project during the lengthy meeting.
