Champaign wind farm may move forward after nearly decade-long fight

A controversial Champaign County wind farm could begin construction by the end of this year after a nearly decade-long legal fight that divided community members.

The Ohio Supreme Court has dismissed a pending legal case after the wind farm’s developers and members of Union Neighbors United, a group opposed to the wind farm, said they have reached a settlement.

That deal sets the stage for the wind farm to begin construction as early as next year, said Jason Dagger, project manager for the Buckeye Wind Farm. He declined to discuss details of the settlement, but said the agreement settles the last pending legal fight over the wind farm.

“Any settlement like this will help the project move forward,” Dagger said. “It ultimately may not look exactly like the initial project that was permitted.”

There will likely be fewer turbines built, but the locations of those turbines will not change, he said.

Attorneys for UNU confirmed a settlement has been reached, but declined to provide further details.

“The appeal at the Supreme Court has been dismissed at the joint request of UNU and Buckeye Wind,” said Jack Van Kley, an attorney representing UNU in the case. “The issues have been resolved.”
