Wind rulemaking: Wind turbine incidents / wind farms and local building codes

Case number: 19-0778-GE-BRO

The OPSB initiated this rulemaking proceeding  to investigate whether to adopt a rule requiring turbine operators to report incidents to the Board. Additionally, the Board is seeking comment on a proposed revision to its rules to make explicit that economically significant wind farms and major utility facilities consisting of wind-powered generation adhere to local building codes.

All interested persons or entities wishing to file comments or reply comments with the OPSB regarding the proposed draft rules issued by the OPSB on June 20, 2019 must do so no later than July 11, 2019, and July 26, 2019, respectively.
