County to revise wind turbine ordinance

By David Fenker

Wabash County's ordinance regulating commercial wind turbines may soon become even more strict.

The county's Plan Commission will vote on a proposal to increase restrictions on turbines at its 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7, meeting.

According to Plan Commission Director Mike Howard, the new restrictions are to further prevent wind turbine companies from setting up shop in Wabash County.

“We're making it very difficult for them to meet our setbacks. The increase in the size of the units has made it so they don't need as many, so that it's a little easier to find a location where they can set,” he said.
