Public Service Commission Holds Wind Project Meeting

Posted: Updated:
Residents in Stark and Morton counties met at the Hebron Community Center this morning to share their thoughts on a proposed wind farm. The Public Service Commission held a meeting on the Sunflower Wind Project, and was seeking public comments.

"Everything we heard at the hearing was all in support of the project. We had a lot of questions about the concerns that we might have for set backs from homes and roads, but everyone that came to the hearing today was in support of the project. Both Stark and Morton county have issued their conditional use permits which means the county commissioners have already approved this project at their level," says Brian Kalk of the Public Service Commission.

The Sunflower Wind Project would place 59 wind turbines across 12,000 acres of privately owned land.
