Seneca County wind farm project on hold

A citizen group fighting a proposed wind farm in Seneca County claimed victory Friday after Seneca Wind LLC withdrew its application to construct the farm of up to 77 commercial-scale wind turbines because of a permitting error.

The company filed its notice of withdrawal with the Ohio Power Siting Board, but said it intends to refile the application this fall, once all materials the board needs to properly review the application are in place.

“This is a victory for those fighting to protect Seneca County from being transformed into an industrial zone without local residents having a vote on the matter,” the Seneca Anti-Wind Union, a vocal opponent of the project, said Friday.

Seneca Wind a subsidiary of Utah-based sPower, filed its application for the wind farm with the Ohio Power Sitting Board last July. The plans were met with fierce opposition from residents concerned about the size of the turbines and their impact on nature, though supporters of the project attended public meetings to speak on the topic as well.
