OPSB suspends hearing schedule for Seneca Wind Farm

COLUMBUS, OHIO (April 5, 2019) – The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) today suspended the hearings scheduled in the Seneca Wind Farm case, including the local public hearing previously set for April 23, 2019 in Tiffin, Ohio and the evidentiary hearing set to begin on May 16, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio.

On April 4, 2019, Seneca Wind, LLC and the OPSB staff filed a joint motion to suspend the hearing schedule to allow additional time for Seneca Wind to provide the staff with information required for the staff to complete its report of investigation.

The OPSB will establish a new hearing schedule at a later date.

The proposed Seneca Wind Farm would be situated on approximately 56,900 acres of leased private land in Scipio, Reed, Venice, Eden, and Bloom townships. The facility would consist of up to 77 wind turbines with a total generating capacity of up to 212 megawatts.

Additional information regarding the proposed wind farm is available on the OPSB website at www.OPSB.ohio.gov in case number 18-0488-EL-BGN.
