E.ON holds informational meeting for landowners about wind farm  

Credit:  By Amanda Mueller | Dec 19, 2018 | www.tristatehomepage.com ~~

Energy company E.ON is looking to use the power of wind in the Tri-State, with a new wind farm.

The project would depend on landowners in Posey and Gibson counties to lease out space for the turbines for thirty years.

On Wednesday, the company held a meeting for landowners interested in or concerned about the project.

The meeting took place at North Posey High School and was the second meeting this week.

Monday, an identical meeting took place at Gibson Southern High School.

The meeting included dinner and a lengthy information session, and landowners packed the cafeteria.

Our cameras were not allowed inside during the meeting.

Topics included lease terms for landowners interested in leasing out their properties for the turbines, substations or construction staging areas.

Payment was also discussed, including estimates on county revenue for the project, which is roughly 37.5 million for Gibson and Posey counties for this project.

According to E.ON, the project requires approximately 15,000 acres.

So far, E.ON has commitments from landowners for a little over 8,000 acres.

Another 3,300 have verbally committed or are under legal review.

We spoke with several people who did not want to be on camera.

At least two people said they support wind power, but are skeptical of the eyesores wind turbines would create.

Another said some members of his family are against it, but that he’d like to know more about where money goes towards the county, and what the process is.
