EverPower's request for a PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) for the Scioto Ridge Wind project has been approved by the Ohio Development Services Agency and is now in the hands of the Logan County Commissioners.

The commissioners have announced that a public meeting will be held on


Tuesday, May 17
Holland Theatre
Bellefontaine, Ohio

The meeting has been set for 4 p.m. Tuesday, May 17, at the Holland Theatre. Individuals for and against the proposal will be allowed to speak, but the meeting, which is not required by law, will not be conducted in the format of an official public hearing, commissioners said.

There will be no time limit on speakers’ comments, they said.

“The purpose of this public meeting will be to listen and receive input from proponents and opponents of the proposed project,” commissioners wrote in a news release. “The Commissioners will not be addressing the audience or voting on the application at this public meeting.

Please mark your calendar now and plan to attend this important meeting!

Come and share your feelings with the commissioners on the PILOT and wind turbine siting in Logan County.  Their vote on acceptance or denial of the PILOT will determine whether EverPower builds 18 turbines in the townships of Rushcreek and Richland.  According to EverPower chief development officer Chris Shears, the 18 492' turbines will not be built in Logan County if the LC commissioners do not approve the pilot request.

More information will come your way as May 17 approaches.  Please--save the date.
