SENECA WIND LLC
Location: Seneca County, OH
Electricity Generated: 200 MW ac
Seneca Wind is a 200 MW wind farm that will be located across the townships of Scipio, Reed, Venice, Eden and Bloom in Seneca County, Ohio. The project will be built on approximately 25,000 acres of privately-leased land and will utilize up to 77 turbines. The turbines will be a mixture of General Electric 2.3 Megawatt turbines and 2.5 MW turbines. Land leases with private landowners will provide a consistent revenue stream for local farmers and residents for the life of the project, in excess of typical farm income. The project has been doing environmental studies for several years and will comply with all Ohio State regulations including those pertaining to wildlife, wetlands, noise, flicker and setbacks.
The project will provide a significant economic stimulus to the area during construction by providing jobs and local contracts for goods and services, and significant long-term economic benefits through lease revenue to local landowners and PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) revenues to the community. Additionally, revenue generated from the project will benefit the state of Ohio.
