Seneca Wind project developer opens Tiffin office

Utah-based sPower, the wind farm developer behind the proposed 212-megawatt Seneca Wind farm, has opened an office in downtown Tiffin, The Toledo Blade reports. Seneca Wind “is one of two major wind farms planned for the Seneca County area,” and sPower “said the turbines it wants to install will provide enough clean energy to power almost 60,000 homes each year,” according to the article. The state certified the wind farm “as a qualified energy project in September, establishing a fixed payment in lieu of taxes throughout the operational life of the project.” The Ohio Power Siting Board has not scheduled a date for a final decision on the project. Seneca County Commissioner Shayne Thomas said sPower’s local office “will grow into hundreds of millions of dollars in new investment across the county.” For more, read the full article
