Moratorium set on new wind farms

TIPTON — Tipton County commissioners voted Monday to suspend acceptance of new zoning applications for wind farms through Oct. 1 or until the county’s ordinance that sets restrictions on wind farms is amended.

The moratorium won’t affect zoning officials’ approval for juwi Wind’s plans for up to 94 wind turbines capable of generating up to 150 megawatts of power.

This would likely not impact the Wildcat Windfarm, which straddles the border of Madison and Tipton counties, since it is not new. Also, possible plans for further development would be in Howard and Grant counties.
