COLUMBUS – The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) announces that Northwest Ohio Wind Energy LLC will hold a public informational meeting on Tuesday, April 9 to inform the public of its plans to develop a 100 megawatt (MW) capacity wind farm in Paulding County.
The meeting will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School at Haviland.
Northwest Ohio Wind Energy, (OPSB Case No. 12-0197-EL-BGN) proposes to build approximately 50 wind turbines and associated infrastructure, including collection lines and a step-up transformer.
This project encompasses more than 9,000 acres in Blue Creek and Latty Townships in Paulding County and would connect to the electric grid at AEP-Ohio’s Haviland Substation.
The OPSB requires project developers such as Northwest Ohio Wind Energy to hold a public informational meeting before submitting an application to the board. This meeting is intended to provide area residents with the opportunity to review a map of the proposed project and discuss the project with company representatives. Representatives from the OPSB will also be available to answer questions about the OPSB Certificate process and explain how members of the public can participate.
Additional information regarding this project is available on the OPSB website at www.OPSB.ohio.gov.
