DeWitt Co. OKs wind turbine setbacks, not height limits

CLINTON – The DeWitt County Board’s decisions Thursday night to expand the setback around wind farm turbine towers but not limit their height pleased a developer proposing such a project but left some residents unhappy. The board voted 6-5 against implementing a height limit of 499 feet, but it unanimously approved mandating a setback of at least 2,000 feet between a turbine tower and the property of a landowner who is not contracted to host a tower site. That setback is . . . Complete story »

You likely won’t see a wind farm sprouting in Allen County, but you probably will see more arrays of slowly revolving wind turbines springing up elsewhere in the state. Indiana still has a lot of untapped wind energy potential, said both Tristan Vance, director of the Indiana Office of Energy Development, and Jodi Perras, manager of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio. “The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that Indiana has the potential to . . .
