Chicago Company To Build Wind Farm Downstate

October 29, 2008

As reported in Huffington Post Green

 An agreement has been reached between the developer of a McLean County wind farm and a group of landowners that opposed the project.

Invenergy Wind and the landowners settled their differences before a hearing on a civil lawsuit filed by the landowners was scheduled to begin Monday. No agreement details were made available.

Information is Power, representing the landowners, argued in its lawsuit that the McLean County Zoning Board of Appeals did not give ample opportunities for opponents of the wind farm to express their opinions.

Chicago-based Invenergy applied for the permit in August 2006. The zoning board recommended granting the permit in February 2007, and the County Board approved it the next month.

Of the 100 turbines in the planned project, 89 would be in McLean County. The rest would be in Woodford County.
