Although two current wind farm projects remain on the schedule to go up this year in portions of southwestern Grant County, there will be no deals made on future wind projects in until the current Grant County ordinance is revised. Commissioner Mark Bardsley says a moratorium is now in effect for all future wind farm proposals.
A public review of the ordinance will be held by the Area Plan Commission on March 3rd at 7pm.
Meanwhile the two current projects with E-On Climate and Renewables remain in a holding pattern until the next County Council meeting takes place on February 19th at 6pm.
