sPower refiles Seneca Wind project

sPower refiled its Seneca Wind 212-megawatt wind turbine project this week with the Ohio Power Siting Board and announced a pre-application public meeting 3-6 p.m. Oct. 23 at Attica Fairgrounds.

In a pre-application notification letter to OPSB Monday, the company outlined a plan similar to the project sPower withdrew in August.

According to the letter, turbines would have a total generating capacity of up to 212 megawatts.

The filing said the project would be built on about 25,000 acres of leased private land in Scipio, Reed, Venice, Eden and Bloom townships, and would consist of up to 77 wind turbine generators along with access roads, electric collection cables, a substation, a laydown yard for construction staging, an operations and maintenance facility, and two meteorological towers.

Energy generated would deliver power to a single point of interconnection on the AEP Melmore 138 kilovolt transmission line, the letter said.

“The general purpose of the project is to produce environmentally clean, reliably priced, low cost electricity to the Ohio electric marketplace,” the letter said.

The meeting Oct. 23 is at the Attica Fairgrounds Social Hall, 15127 E. TR 12, Attica.

The new Seneca Wind OPSB case number is 19-1831-EL-BGN.
