Seneca Anti-Wind Union to continue to fight after sPower announces end to Seneca Wind Farm

It’s been a fight that has lasted over a year, but now, the Seneca Anti-Wind Union has received a significant victory with sPower pulling their wind turbine project out of Seneca County.

Beginning in April 2018, residents of Seneca County opposing a large number of wind turbines possibly making their way into the area formed a group called the “Seneca Anti-Wind Union.”

Today, that group now has nearly 3,000 likes on Facebook.

“Believe me, there’s people throughout this effort that have just put their heart and soul into this project. It’s really rewarding to see the people support us and for them to step forward with their time, money, and their support overall,” said Member, Greg Smith.

With the Seneca Wind Project application rescinded, that leaves the APEX Clean Energy Republic Wind Farm still on the table for the area.

That project would bring in up to 47 wind turbines in Seneca and Sandusky Counties.

“Obviously, we’re thrilled with this most recent news on the Seneca Wind Project. But yet, the fight continues, and we’ll stay adament to fight the Republic Wind Project, while defending our quality of life, property values, and wildlife health and safety,” added Smith.

The Republic Wind Project has not yet been approved by the Ohio Power Siting Board.

There will still need to be a public hearing and an adjudicatory hearing.

The Seneca Anti-Wind Union believes in the fight against large wind farms across the state, however, too.

The Emerson Creek Wind Project could also bring turbines to Erie and Huron Counties, and residents across all of the area has been joining together.

“That’s been one of our strengths. There’s no sense reinventing the wheel. We can work together, use the same material, the same tactics, so we’re a very close knit group,” said Smith.

There is no public hearing scheduled for the Republic Wind Project.
