State board seeks public comments on proposed wind rules 

Credit:  By Norwalk Reflector Staff | June 24, 2019 | www.norwalkreflector.com ~~

The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has issued proposed rules applicable to wind-powered electric generation facilities in Ohio Administrative Code 4906-4-09.

The OPSB initiated this rulemaking proceeding to investigate whether to adopt a rule requiring turbine operators to report turbine incidents. The board seeks comments on the proposed rules from members of the public and industry stakeholders by July 11 and reply comments by July 26. The OPSB also seeks comments on a proposed revision to its rules to make explicit that turbine operators adhere to local building codes.

In other business, the OPSB granted the request of Black Fork Wind Energy LLC to relinquish its certificate to construct up to 91 wind turbines with a combined generating capacity of 200 megawatts in Crawford and Richland counties.

Additional information about the OPSB decisions is available at OPSB.ohio.gov. A copy of the entry seeking comments is available in case No. 19-778-GE-ORD.

The Ohio Power Siting Board reviews applications for the construction of major utility facilities in Ohio. Together with Ohio’s elected officials, citizen stakeholders and the energy industry, the board strives to build a strong and competitive foundation for Ohio’s future.
