Wind farm county public meeting scheduled

The Young County Commissioners Court will host a public hearing Aug. 9 at 10 a.m. for public comment regarding a proposed wind farm in Young County. The court will listen to public comments before making consideration on a new reinvestment zone as well as tax abatement and road use agreements.

The reinvestment zone, titled Reinvestment Zone No. 3, is expected to cover the previous zone as well as newer properties that have since made agreements with Young Wind LLC. Development manager Ben Semmes said at a June 10 public hearing within the two boundaries are 31 landowners with 30,128,22 verified acres of land with an assessed value of $2,218,153. It was during this meeting that a new zone was approved and a June 28 public hearing was set for new tax abatement and road use agreements. An email from Apex Clean Energy, the parent company of the project further confirmed the growth from the original plans.

“Depending on future landowner interest, the final area of interest could be up to 39,000 acres, possibly built in multiple phases,” the email states. “The final design and schedule will continue to be refined over the coming months, but our hope is to commence construction by the end of 2021.”
