One small battle win, in the big war against BigWind. What a wonderful site to see so many Allen and Van Wert residents unite in their opposition to this wind energy transmission line. The decision of the port authority was UNANIMOUS! Apex, however, did not appear to waver, in their desire to make this happen…via another/alternative route. At least some of the Allen county citizens are now awake/enlightened/informed and common sense will prevail. Now is the time to speak with your farming neighbors and friends, in order to PREVENT Apex from obtaining an alternative route!….
The public has spoken….
It was a packed house for Thursday’s meeting of the Allen County Port Authority.
Members of the public wanted to let their voices be heard concerning a proposal by Apex Clean Energy to build a transmission line to an American Electric Power substation in Lima.
The line would link a proposed Long Prairie Wind Farm in Van Wert county to the Allen county substation.
Apex needed permission from the Port Authority because the line they want to construct runs along the Allen Van Wert rail line and they need an easement from the Port Authority for that to happen….
