Proposed Putnam County Wind Farm In Jeopardy

The future of a wind farm near Leipsic is in doubt. The Putnam County Sentinel reports officials from Iberdrola Renewables talked to the Putnam County Commissioners about the issue last week.
Jim O’Conner is with Iberdrola. He says wording in a House Bill passed in June means his company would have to get set-back waivers from 50 percent or more properties.
House Bill 483 mandates wind turbines have setbacks 1,250 feet from the nearest property lines.
O’Conner says Iberdrola is considering if it is possible to move forward in Putnam County.
