Wind turbine fight is far from over

A common question I have been asked is, “Why is the county still looking at information into wind turbines – I thought the project was dead?” My response is, “Yes, the Harvest Wind project is dead, but as long as Cass County still has a weak WECS ordinance, the next wind company will gladly take advantage of the opportunity to build another project.” As many of you remember, it was a long process to have three contracts drawn up for our . . .

Wind turbine project creeping forward

A project that would bring up to 52 wind generating turbines to northwestern Fayette County is still moving forward, but slowly. NextEra Energy Resources says it has land agreements for all of the turbines planned in the West Fork Wind project, according to Bryan Garner, the company’s communications director. “The West Fork Wind project has strong landowner interest and participation. It also has secured the necessary local permitting. We are currently marketing the project to potential customers,” he wrote. Originally, . . . Complete story »

The Jasper County Commissioners met on Monday with a short agenda and a huge audience. The meeting could not be moved to a court room because the courts were in session. First on the agenda was a brief report from Stephen Eastridge, Director of the Jasper County Economic Development Organization (JCEDO). He announced that there would be a series of meetings of the task force to prepare the County for the 2023 closing of the Schahfer Plant. The first will . . . Complete story »

Another take on solar, wind power

I would like to add to the ideas that Jean Webb proposed in her recent Letter to the Editor “Let’s All Become YIMBYs (Yes In My Back Yard).” Please, do not let us neglect the thousands of unused acres in our state and national parks! Most could readily accommodate solar and wind projects! Solar panels could be used for marking trails, and wind turbines could be placed in most open areas, many with reliable winds – several hundred turbines could . . . Complete story »

County changes its wind ordinance

It took more than a year of debating, researching and modifying, but Montgomery County Commissioners approved an amendment to the county’s ordinance regulating noise levels of wind turbines at a meeting in July. “This is an improvement from what we had in 2009,” commissioner president Jim Fulwider said during the July 9 meeting. “I don’t see how it’s not a step in the right direction. I think we did our due diligence and gave this the time to look into . . . Complete story »

Blown away: Wind project leaves Henry Co.

The Flat Rock Wind Project is dead in Henry County. Flat Rock Wind was a planned industrial wind farm that called for turbines in southern Henry and northern Rush Counties. “It’s with a heavy heart that Apex Clean Energy has made the difficult decision to terminate our project in both counties,” Apex Clean Energy Senior Development Manager Erin Baker announced Tuesday. Baker said it has become increasingly difficult over the last several years to maintain the Flat Rock Wind project . . . Complete story »

Reader wants removal of ERA designations for wind companies

The local Chamber of Commerce seems to be in full support of Apex Roaming Bison’s proposed industrial wind turbine project in Montgomery County. However, there are a few items that should be brought to light in regards to Apex as a local business. First, commissioners have not approved their proposal. Although Apex has been trying to convince commissioners to sign an economic development agreement for almost a year now, their proposal was denied in September. There have been no building . . .

The Jasper County Board of Commissioners spent a significant portion of their Monday, Dec. 3 meeting in a hearing, which took place in the Circuit Courtroom of the Jasper County Courthouse. The subject of the hearing was whether or not the commissioners would approve an amendment to the county’s ordinance on wind power, curbing the likelihood of proposed wind farm projects being able to move forward. That hearing’s venue, different from the commissioners’ usual meeting room, was meant to accommodate . . . Complete story »
