New dates set for Seneca Wind Farm hearings

The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has rescheduled the local public hearing for Seneca Wind LLC’s Seneca Wind Farm (see our April 24, 2019 blog post) for July 23, 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Tiffin University, The Advertiser-Tribune reports. The hearing “is to provide an opportunity for local people interested in the project area, who are not parties to the case, to provide testimony regarding the proposed facility,” according to the article. An adjudicatory hearing, at which Seneca Wind, OPSB staff and parties to the case may present evidence regarding the project, will take place August 26 at 10:00 a.m. at the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio in Columbus. If approved, the wind farm “would be constructed on about 57,000 acres of leased private land in Scipio, Reed, Venice, Eden and Bloom townships,” with up to 77 turbines and a total generating capacity of up to 212 megawatts.
